K5 IIs Top LCD display viewing angle issue

I happen to notice that when the top display LCD back-light is ON and looking from a front angle the displayed information will disappear. Is this normal?
This is brand new camera that I got 2 days ago.

Yes, the viewing angle of the LCD is limited and optimized for the direction you are typically viewing it from.

Looks just like mine, just the edge of the LCD. Don't look for problems, just use it.
