How can I decide if the dust is on the sensor or lens? Can't see anything on both.

It was on the sensor. Solved it by gently applying a brush to losen the dust particles. After that I used a vacuum cleaner! The last thing made my day!

I normally only use one of these little rubber air pumps, with the camera mount facing down, blowing everything out, maybe using a soft lens brush first, but this normally gets everything that isn't "sticky".
