Well, time, and a few lens changes, have finally caught up with my D40. I believe that I may have dust on my sensor. Unlike the small dark flecks that are often shown as an example, I am seeing what looks like small water spots (under high magnification on the monitor) in the image. These are primarily visible in blue-sky type shots where the image area around the spots is a constant color. I am assuming that this is something on the sensor, and I plan to try the path of least resistance this weekend - a rocket blower. Is there any reason to believe that my assumption is not correct? And, I could not find any specific sticky posts about sensor cleaning. Is there an article on the Nikonians web site that I missed? Any links or advice would be appreciated.
