hi AtomClassic,

5D mk3? you can bring it down to CSC since it is such a new camera, they can remove the dots; be it dust on the sensor, or in the viewfinder

p.s. don't cross post the exact same question in different section.

Might be your viewfinder that is dirty, nothing to do with your lens and sensor. But to be sure, you might want to change a new lens and try, see if you see the three black dots.

If it was the viewfinder that was dirty, there are a couple of ways to deal with it,

1) Ignore, since it is not affecting your pics (just serve to annoy you).
2) Clean the viewfinder yourselves (CLEANING THE EOS 5D MKII VIEWFINDER « SHIMWORLD)
3) Take it down to CSC to clean
4) Take it to shops like camera hospital or Pgcamera for cleaning.

If I was you, I will choose to ignore the dots. If really cannot, I will DIY the cleaning :)

Learn to ignore or you will be cleaning the focusing screen weekly... Your camera is not dust proof, the spots will come back quickly after every cleaning orgy.
