try a blower... this might work... but know that you may end up making it worse than it already is...

Yup, had that happen. I gor REALLY annoyed with one speck of dust, and ended up bringing the camera in for proper cleaning after I blew lots more dust on viewfinder and sensor..Couldn't clean it myself anymore Now I really don't mind viewfinder dust that much anymore

clean viewfinder

Hi Iwhiz, I had similar problem. I had to remove the focusing screen - found instructions on internet. Then cleaned the screen and blew dust out of viewfinder area. Do this in humid air, not dry air like if airconditioner is on.

Blowing clean in dry climate can create static electricity which attracts more dust.
