    anyway, like sehsuan said, cant understand why your mirror can be that dirty in just 3 days (seems pretty dirty base on the way you had written)????
    Lens cleaning paper I heard scratches the mirror eazily.....

Good luck!
    How much?.... do I just ask for a lens cleaning kit that comes with a dust grabber?

    I prefer to have Canon clean the sensor, it only costs $20, but it's worry-free.

    I sent it back to canon once b4... they recommended changing the mirror.... after 3 days the dirt came back.... i think they'll recommend the same again...
    any other suggestions?
    CP does sell stronger blower.

    you should take note how does the dust got there. How do you change your lens? Change in the dusty area?

    Anyway my camera mirror also have a dot ( dust ) and it does not bother me.

    says who? in order to check the dust on sensor, IMHO set the aperture to smallest like f22 n shoot at bright sky then check again from the picture u got... viewfinder does not always show u the dust ok...

    if the problem persist, it's better to find the root of the cause.

    one i discovered a relatively large speck of dirt on the viewfinder... turn out that the body cap was chipped and the plastic just broke into very small pieces of dirt.

    Default Thank You Everyone!!! Problem Solved

    I went back to Canon, they check it out and use a presurized blower to clear the dirt from my focusing screen for free. Just want to add, the service person that served me was a babe... did a good job....did not get her name though.

    Anyways, thanks everyone that tried to help or responded.

    How do you guys like this picture?


    PLease comment.

    Yes, got it for abt $30 (It's a made-in-usa kit). I left my Nikon lens for too long without changing the silical gel and I saw this spidery thing on my lens. I had tried to clean with a LCD cloth but to no avail. But the kit works like magic. The glass is now super clear. You can see Steven at CP.
    Hope this helps

    I think I know which one you're refering to. She's the one sitting at the other end. Long hair, fair skin, pretty face, nice body.

    I change lenses on every holiday trip, but never notice my sensor getting dirty. I guess I'm lucky..

    Thanks serene... will definitely help, I have a feeling that cleaning will always be needed sooner or later

    Yup... that's the one, so I was not the only one that noticed her...
