    but I'm curious why you describe it as 'little fur'...
    TS probably has a cat or something or pet at home
    and keeps the camera in a clean room-like box.

    It's probably because the 'fur' is on the focusing screen, and looks really magnified when viewed through the VF. Same explanation for the '1mm dust' I reckon. 1mm is bigger than a grain of sand I think...

    haha i meant psychologically, having a pet that has a coat of fur, once you see something like that on your camera or in your camera, you would assume it's from the pet.

    so, when magnified it looks like a tiny clump of fur

    that is called "letting one's imagination run wild!"

    I did peer through the viewfinder of a fellow CSer's MF film camera before. Many many "alien spacecraft" inside But he's still able to shoot beautiful photos.
    A great example of not sweating the small stuff
    Exploring! :)

    yup. hey thanks for quoting the phrase "letting one's imagination run wild". should have used that instead.

    haha.

    sometimes, it's just the smallest things that have absolutely no bearing on how the image turns out that makes people anxious.

    especially those that keep cleaning the front element.
