Have you seen a dirtier sensor?

Pls dont bash me for camera cruelty. The camera has since been cleaned professionally. This happened after I had taken some pictures during a whiteout in a dust storm. Didnt notice how dirty my sensor was till I took some pics at f22.

Adds a natural "gritty" look to images...

No, can't say I have. I thought I had a bad one, but this takes it easily.

Reminds me that I need to get mine cleaned. First, I have to find out how.

No sealed camera/lens combination? Sand can be brutal.
