i just recently noticed three little specs when looking through the view finder and first i thought it might just be on the lens soi cleaned the lens and it was still there so i switched to a different lens and it was still there i tried cleaning the sensor and i cleaned the eye piece too and the little specs are still there. i read the post about the spots on the 20d sensor so i decided to check my pictures, i took the pictures trying to see the specs and i took a picture of a white door and i took it close to the handle on the door so when i look at the picture icould easily find if there was anything showing up and i couldnt find anything. does that mean theres dust somewhere else or do you think it might still be on the sensor because i do not have that strong of a blower to clean with. its not messing up my pictures so its not that big of a deal but it bothers me when i can see it in the viewfinder.

The specs can't be on the sensor as the sensor is behind the closed shutter and mirror. The specs are probably on the mirror or the viewing screen. Not a problem. just annoying.

try using air from something like a Rocket Blower and see if you can get rid of it. do NOT use compressed air from a can. But, i wouldn't bother unless it's really annoying. I get spots and lint and they eventually do away and other dust follows.

I encountered the same problem with my 20D. So far the spot is still there after cleaning with a blower. I am going to leave it alone for now and not "OutSmart Myself" by messing with it.

I gave up on trying to remove the ones in my 10D view finder since they have no affect on the pictures at all. Yep annoying!!!!
