I saw these black specks on my landscape pics. Initially I thought it was because the 18-55mm lens were dirty so I didn't think much into it. And then I changed to a 50mm lens (was going to the hospital and take pics of my newborn niece hence the portrait lens). So I took some pics of the sky outside my window for fun. I saw those specks again!
So I knew I had to clean the inside of the body. I used the brush with the air pump thing, then peered into the viewfinder, then saw probably the remnants of the bristles of the brush, so I took a cloth instead. To my horror, I saw a SCRATCH at the bottom right of the frame when I peered through the viewfinder. I probably just panicked and started to just wipe the mirrors more profusely, so that might not have helped. I took another pic, turns our the scratch wasn't reflected in the pic at all.
But i discovered sthg else instead.
My AF point selection on the viewfinder have sort of faded! As in, the red spots are now blurred and the red isn't as sharp as before. Not that it can't AF anymore, but I can't see where its AFing as well now!!!
