Some pics with the *istDL and M50 2.0 from this morning.

Click the thumbnails to enlarge. (1280x851)

The ol' 50 ain't too bad. Been lost for awhile, couple years or so, finally found it. I'm still learning the stop-down metering, though.

Thanks.

Regarding the dust spots; yeah, I know. Right up there with the hot pixels. *mumbles something under breath* As for the dust spots - NOOB QUESTION WARNING - would it be possible to gently whisk the dust away with a clean lens cloth or is that just asking for disaster? I get the idea that these sensors are rather fragile.

I agree. Really great shots! The last one is just excellent!

I would not try using a lens cloth on the sensor. Just get some sensor cleaners or have your camera shop do it. The sensor is one thing that experimenting with could be catastrophic! Make sure you have a good blower (like the Rocket Blower, the big one) and sensor cleaning swabs. I've done in on my DS with perfect success.

So far, I have been able to remove any sensor dust I've seen using just the RocketAir blower. Scott Bourne actually uses the LensPen to clean his sensor (after knocking off the graphite dust) -- though he has the money to replace his camera if he destroys it this way...

I have a LensPen, but I hope I never need to use it for this purpose.
