Dust Busted..who ya gonna call..

update..after getting my dremel tool out managed to remove the little bugger.....
actually lens pen is fine..funny as I had same spots on my Canon G11,but they were sensor stain from gong from -20 to + 18>C temp
does the K5Ii have a dust collector on the sides of the sensor? just wonder where it goes..

Don't ask questions you really don't want to know the answers too.

Answer 1) It may only upset you to know its still there, just hiding for a wee while 'till your backs turned, then it relocates back somewhere else on the sensor.

Answer 2) It just builds up at the bottom of the camera and every now and again you can tip it out as if it were sand.

As long as it's not popping up on all your images, just go with flow.
