Unless you actually see something unpleasant in the viewfinder as a result of it (which I really strongly doubt) this tiny mark will not affect anything.

The mirror is only there to help you see through the lens, when you take a shot it's flipped up out of the way so this mark will never affect you photos.

Kinda what I meant. The only thing it could affect is the view through the viewfinder, and it is so small and right on the very edge of the mirror so I doubt it will affect even that.
