Can someone tell me what these makrs are? Not the circles but whats inside the circles. I'm having a fit cause all the lenses are clean, as is the mirror and the marks show no matter which lense I'm using.

Are they always in the same place? Have you brought the camera back to the supplier? Have you tried the lens on a different camera?

If they are in the same place in every shot it is dust on the ccd. Get a blower and blow it all out (DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR)

Compressed air is too strong and will permanently damage the CCD. Or so im told.

Not really. Air caming from compressor always contains water and oil and they can not do anything good to CCD. IMHO :-)

Never put the nozzle full into the camera. Hold it above the lens mount.

Just incase the mirror closes while you are doing it (if you hit the switch or it runs out of batteries)

If it doesnt fix it get it professionally cleaned if its a big deal.
