    If you see it in the viewfinder, it is NOT ON THE SENSOR.

    Chances are, you have dust in your viewfinder. Bring it to NSC.

    Not sure if it's on the mirror. Can try to use a blower and blow it off...

    If you turn on the live view and see no dust, it's not on the sensors.

    If blowing doesn't work, gotta send down to the service center for cleaning...this process for cleaning by NSC is chargeable (means need to pay lar) regardless if your camera is under warranty or not.

    another alternative is if you can tahan, just ignore it....


    I still have some dust in the viewfinder which I can't blow out (think it's stuck on the other side of the mirror), but it's OK for me since it doesn't appear on the picture..

    I normally only use the blower and blow at the mirrors. Just make sure your camera is turned off and the lens mount hole is facing the ground when you start blowing in the air.

    Just be careful not to squeeze the blower so hard that you lose control and hit the mirrors with the blower...you won't want to leave a blower mark/scratch there..

    the dust shouldnt be on your sensor... as you are able to see it on your viewfinder... just blow it using your blower, might be your mirror or what that has the dust...

    Dust is either in your viewfinder, outside your viewfinder or on the focusing screen, non of which will affect your pictures. So why worry?
