Scratched focus screen?
Aug 4, 2011

Not sure what the issue is... but I had some black dots in my view finder. So what I did was remove the focus screen carefully and then used a blower and blew into the camera where the viewfinder is located. After that I blew onto the focus screen as well. I replaced the focus screen carefully and closed it. Once I put the lens on and looked through my eye piece all I see is 3 black hairline scratches to the bottom right corner. Those dots still remain as well so now I'm totally confused. These dots and 3 black hairline scratches do not appear in my photos.

What exactly do you guys think is the issue? I called henrys to see if they would repair the camera for me aka replace the focus screen... but they said I'd wait 2-4 weeks so forget that lol. What do you guys think....?
