Sensor dust on a new 5D Mark III
« on: January 04, 2013, 08:36:14 PM »
I have heard that sensor dust is present sometimes on new cameras, and in the case of a new 5D Mark III I received today, that statement holds true.  Using a blower made no difference, so the sensor will have a wet cleaning soon.  This is the third consecutive body (first two were Rebel T3i models) with non-blowable sensor dust right out of the box.  My question is whether many of you forum members have had similar experiences.  I must say that not being able to use a new camera right away does something to take the skip out of one’s step.

My 1D X came with Canon's 'randomly-distributed narrow aperture diffraction test pattern', and they didn't even charge extra.  A blower didn't help, but my Arctic Butterfly 724 Super Bright removed the 'feature'.
