Hi, I know this isnt really major problem but when I look though my viewfinder, there is a black dot that I see. It doesnt show up in my pictures or on my lcd, but it really is annoying seeing it every time i take pictures. Is there anyway I can removie it or could this be in a oart of the camera where it may be permanent? Thank you in advance.

Could be muck on the mirror. Take the lens off and clean the mirror (NOT the sensor) with a blower or cue tip. Use lens cleaning solution if the dirt is too sticky to blow off. If that isn't it, look at the glass above the mirror (where the light gets reflected to on the way to the eyepiece) and clean that too. If it's not that then clean the outside element of the eyepiece.
Anywhere else will require taking parts of the camera apart ...
