    Just say sensors.. Canon uses CMOS sensors..
    Set to small aperture (F16 or more), then point a white area or the sky and take some pictures, You should see consistant spots on the same area.
    Anyway if the spots are not shown on ur pics, why bother ?

    Different focal length? I notice can see the presence or not when I can the aperture value. (step down, can see better) That is my experience.
