    thank for you reply.

    the only worry is that the sensor ends up even more dirtier after cleaning.... like what happened to my D700. In the end, still send to NSC.

    That's what I always do, send in to NSC for cleaning. It's a "privileged service" for us

    I will not clean it myself, let those that are obligated, do it

    Why does it not bother you? Circled with red.

    the spots only shows up from f/8 onwards.
    at this moment, i'm not shooting marco or nite shots and hv no plans to travel, so i can live with it for the time being.
    will get it cleaned later.

    also, i achieve the 3102 SC by using the interval shooting from menu....cos i seldom shoot these few weeks as I jus had a minor surgery

    But your obligated to make two trips to CBD on weekdays, on to drop off, one to pick up. That's a cost (in time and money to you), not a privilege.

    NSC is walking distance from my office bro, drop off Liao can go opposite have Ah Hua Bak Kut Teh somemore. Need to Makan anyway...

    Ok it's not a privilege to all, but to me it is still ok, though I wished I never need to exercise it....so potential buyers be prepared before plunging into the camera and then complain here and there later

    Don't understand what you mean by "more dirtier"? So if it become more dirty can it be recover.
    What I worry is you accidental scratch the sensor.

    You can't scratch the sensor even if you wanted to, there is a set of filters on top of it and that's what they clean. Anyway, I guess on a microscopic level every contact with it will result in scratches, being a wet wash, a brush or whatever but certainly it won't affect the image.

    Yes, the sensor will not be scratched during sensor cleaning because there's a filter in front.
    But if the filter is scratched, IIRC, the whole sensor has to be replaced.

    There's some risk in sensor(AA filter) cleaning so be very extra careful.
    If you're sending your camera for cleaning, best is to take a proof /evidence before sending and check carefully after collection.

    Or just like checking for dust, shoot a white piece of paper or wall at small aperture just before sending the camera for cleaning. Use that photo to compare after cleaning.

    It's a wise thing to do every time you send your camera in, regardless whether it's for sensor cleaning or not. I do it on the spot in front of the CSO every time. Saved me time from dispute on a couple of occasions already.

    I put in NSC for 2-3 days, end up during collection still not cleaned properly. As I need the camera, I just tell them, "I'll be back". Mine is 12k +

    Do get well. Health is paramount.
    Cameras and lenses are just adult toys. Relatively not important.

    Lots of people take photos with apertures of F8 and smaller (to F22 or 32).

    Anyway, if you bought the camera brand new, then the poor QC during camera production is not acceptable.

    I am not sure if this is a repost but some people are reporting Scratched mirror box in their d600. So the dust came from the camera itself, as the dust is actually scratch shaves off from the camera each time you take a picture.

    i have yet to check if my newly brought has the same problem (only 120 SC) but i have 2 spots so far. top mid and middle left -.-
    So taking logic with it, the dust will cont to stay and increase until the curtain no longer has any contact with the friction causing object...

    kind of like how car tires get worn out after prolong use....guess we have to keep using it until the scratch is deep enff to not touch the other surface -.- hope u guys understand what i m trying 2 say.
