Yep dirt on the sensor..... the more you stop down the more they are seen so at f16 they are more noticeable.

Cool let us know how you get on with it as it's not a feature on either of my cameras.

Buy HAMA blower. It's maybe 10 dollars. Will solve most of the dots.

Ok the auto sensor cleaner is worthless, it was on auto anyway so everytime i turned on or the camera off it would do a sensor clean, but i did it a few more times while the camera was on in the menu, didn't do anything,, so i had a static brush and a blower then i did it manually got most of it but if you look to the right on the bottom i can't get rid of that smear, does anybody know any tricks so i can take care of that,, well here is a before cleaning and after cleaning,, i don't understand how dust got in there as i'm alway's using one lens and it stay's on:? but you know dslr's are a pain in the a**
