its dust, and nothing to panic about... you can either send it back for cleaning (probably a fee) or you can get a visible dust brush to clean it, or blower to blow it off, or sticky tape to remove it. search the forum for more details.

yes most probably dust... mine is way dirtier than yours, but again I usually don go above f16 thus not very visible on most shots

Though sticker tape will damage the sensor.

dust on lens won't be visible, cos anything on the lens, unless very prominent on the rear lens, is not visible cos of the minimum focusing. put a finger in the front of your lens and see, then u think, will a small dust be visible?

anyway, send for cleaning, you will still get it later, cos dust can also get in from the side, as the bodies are not dust proof as well.

have read around, they did a test on the dust removal mech, OLY was the best compared to 400D and A100 dust removal systems...

yr camera and kit lens are not weathered sealed so it is possible for dust to get in. especially so if you are shooting in dusty enviroment.


just get a blower (clean one) and blow the dust off. canon will charge you S$21 for cleaning. warranty do not include sensor cleaning. i sent mine in for cleaning as the dust was stuborn and cannot be blown off.

however, like most had said, dont need to panic, can just clone off in ps.

my dust specs bigger than your dust specs.
All my shots had those spots (more when uncropped); spoilt my whole shoot.
