Oh Brother! Your eyes are definitively better than mine.
it's really hard to scratch the sensor (actually it's a low pass filter iirc).
Anyway, when do you use f40?

Looks like streaks to me from using wetting solution.

The marks will never be noticeable under normal shooting conditions.

I have actually put a small scratch in my low pass filter on my old K10d. It was much worse than anything I see here and while annoying - as it showed up on blue sky shots - was easily removed with PP tools. Looks like you are fine.

Looks like you have more spots than scratches. Get out of 40 and don`t worry about it.

Hi
Why would it be a scratch? You use a cleaning movement along the landscape orientation but you marks look like it going at right angle to this. Don't tell me you cleaned it this way!
It is a smear nothing else. A scratch looks entirely different. Come to think I actually I don't really know what it looks like cause I have never seen one

You have some very small crap still left on the sensor filter. And the filter is not easily scratched it has actually a very hard surface. Do you thing repair shops would take on a cleaning job if the filter was this easily ruined?

Greetings

That looks like an incredibly clean sensor. I'd be happy if mine looked like that.

Just do another wet clean, but make sure you keep the swab on the sensor the whole time till you are at the edge before lifting it.

Relax and enjoy your camera. Those couple of tiny streaks from cleaning it will have absolutely zero impact on any pictures you take. I wouldn't even clean it again just yet, the time will come for that when you get some dust on it. Go shoot with it, and have some fun.
