Dirt or scratches ?
Sep 24, 2012

Hi,

I recently noticed 2 spots in a video i recorded. I cleaned the lens carefully and they seemed to be gone, but now "reappeared" - or so i thought - turns out they are just more visible at higher f-values.

My question: is it dirt or a scratch ? I looked at the lens closely but it is hard to tell even in good light if there is a scratch. I think i see one small spot on the lens sometimes, but that is really hard to see eg. the smallest my eyes can distinguish.

Could it have been on the new lens already ? The camera is new and I cleaned it first time after i noticed the spots and I never dropped it.

I need some advice because I'm going on vacation next week and I will be doing lots of shots in bright light where I think I will notice the spots due to higher f-values.
