"Dust more prevelant" Fri 05-Oct-12 02:40 AM by mklass
I guess it's just the nature of high resolution, but now that I've had time to work on most of my early D800e shots, I notice that almost any dust or smudge on a lens with show up in the image. A LensPen or Rocket blower, frequently used, seems to be a required companion. At first I thought the sensor was dirty, but it is a clean as can be.

Definitely not on the sensor. It is not just a spec and moves or disappears with a change of lenses. I examined the sensor with a loupe and it is clean. I suspect a dust spot on a lens is going to be much larger on a D800 image than a D3s or D700.
