    won't suggest you try yourself unless you really find it irritating. everyone gets dust in their viewfinder.. live with it. after you clean it, the dust will come back anyways - until it becomes a literal pain in the arse, i.e. too much, too big.. i suggest you leave it be..

    if clean wrongly, you risk scratching your viewfinder focusing screen.

    If it's too irritating, go back to the service centre.

    dust in the viewfinder is the most irritating thing

    I've tried cleaning using a soft brush. The dust is not actually in the viewfinder. If you look at the mirror's reflection, you actually can see it. From the lens mount, look upwards (inside the camera) and you are able see it. Brush it away softly.

    Cheers

    Try blowing away the dust with a blower?

    I think that's the next best thing you can do..
