bad font formatting?

Just wondering if anyone else is having a problem with some letters on the prs-t1, when reading a page i notice that random letters on the page have a bolder apearence then the rest of the letters and when you tilt the reader, the letter almost seems 3d! this doesn't seem right to me but i was wondering if anyone else has noticed this and is it a problem i should return and swap the reader for. tried taking a picture but my camera doesn't like the closeness and is all blurry so you can't really tell what i mean. my page is auto cropped and the standard font. thanks

I think that it is the cropping feature that creates this 3d effect. I have seen this behavior with manual crop. It does not occur when the page is set to its default margins with no cropping.

I noticed this too with the cropping; it's annoying enough to make the cropping a useless feature for me. I'd rather reformat the file in Calibre or an external editor to fit the 6" screen than use the on-reader crop feature.
