Try blowing it again, spend some time on it . You most likely get it off, otherwise buy a Sensor gel stick.

At f22 and having to enlarge it in order to see it at all I don't think I'm going to lose any sleep over it. I'll blow it out from time to time and keep it as clean as I can, other than that I'm just going to take pictures, like this:

Yeah, the blower is really great. It usually only takes 2 shots to get them all off. On the picture that still shows the spot in the OP's after shot, how often are you really going to notice ? If you are at F22 at the blue sky, sure maybe you will notice it and zoom to 800%. Just shoot at F16 and you will most likely see nothing.

That kind of spot is really easy to fix in PP too.

The "nice" thing about spots is you only really notice them in situations where it is relatively easy to fix them (cloning or healing). Once I start getting dust spots, my own experience has been that I can never fully remove all the spots. I usually end up with one elusive spot, and I just live with them.

Just so everybody knows ,I used 91 percent isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip and then used five more to remove the evaporation marks and I swear it improved the image and the noise performance . So please don't be afraid , scrub the baby . BUT use the damn blower First. These sensors are more resilient than you think. Believe me I scrubbed the daylights out of it. Oh and whilist I was in the cleaning mode I removed my focus screen and clean it with soap and water , so I HAVE A SPARKLING clean Focus screen to look through.

I have used a Q-tip too, but I used it dry with very light pressure after I had blown it out first. Afterwards I used the blower again. After that treatment I couldn't find any more spots.

Yup , q-tips are the way, but don't tell too many people that they will be horrified. LOL
