My D50 seems to have developed two marks which are only visible through the viewfinder. :shock:
I've cleaned the eye-piece & the marks are still visible.
There is nothing showing up on images, so I'm assuming the sensor is clean & the dirt must have found its way to the inside of the viewfinder. I mentioned it to the guy in the shop I bought the camera from (Jessops), who told me to bring it in & he'd swap it for a brand new one!
I told him that it isn't really an issue, as it doesn't affect the outcome of my pictures, but he practically insisted I bring it back for an exchange.
Should I take him up on his (seemingly) generous offer, or is it a case of better the devil you know?

Is one of the marks a vertical black line on the left side of the viewfinder, just to the left of the center autofocus square?

That line appears on certain settings of the camera. Is this the mark?

No, these are two distinctly random "splodges", there is no way they are supposed to be there.
