It finally happened, got a dirty sensor on my a700...
May 2, 2009

after about 1 1/2 years I finally got dirt on the sensor that the normally cleaning and blowing would not get off. We are having a lot of pollen right now and I suspect that is what it was as I've been changing lenses at lot outside. At any rate, I was VERY hesitant to do a wet cleaning as I'm not the youngest kid on the block anymore and I have very poor feel in my finger tips due to prolonged exposure to expoxies and acetone. But, as the old saying goes; no guts, no glory!

Got the Eclipse E2 and the Sensor Swabs out and had at it. I needed to do it twice to get it the way I wanted it. Now it is just fine.

Bottom line: if you are afraid to wet clean; don't be; relax and have at it. If I can do it so can you.

Take the scenic route! Life is too short to do otherwise.
