    hi AtomClassic,

    5D mk3? you can bring it down to CSC since it is such a new camera, they can remove the dots; be it dust on the sensor, or in the viewfinder

    p.s. don't cross post the exact same question in different section.

    Might be your viewfinder that is dirty, nothing to do with your lens and sensor. But to be sure, you might want to change a new lens and try, see if you see the three black dots.

    If it was the viewfinder that was dirty, there are a couple of ways to deal with it,

    1) Ignore, since it is not affecting your pics (just serve to annoy you).
    2) Clean the viewfinder yourselves (CLEANING THE EOS 5D MKII VIEWFINDER SHIMWORLD)
    3) Take it down to CSC to clean
    4) Take it to shops like camera hospital or Pgcamera for cleaning.

    If I was you, I will choose to ignore the dots. If really cannot, I will DIY the cleaning
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Learn to ignore or you will be cleaning the focusing screen weekly... Your camera is not dust proof, the spots will come back quickly after every cleaning orgy.

    just ignore it if you can =), I got 2 also inside my viewfinder right bottom. haha

    you can clean it if you want, but might end up with spot gone and some dust go in? so best is to ignore it =)

    Best to ignore or bring it to the pros to clean it.
    The last time too my D700 viewfinder out to clean i ended blowing the dust in the e are in between the prism filter and prism so LL have to take go service center to clean.
    Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, if you don't like mine pls ignore and move on.
