D600 Sensor check after the 1st 1K

Well, I decided to check My D600s sensor now that I have passed the 1,000 shutter actuation mark. Took a white sheet of paper. stopped down to F19.  Results. There was one obvious dust spec in the upper L corner of the picture.  There was another less obvious one lower more towards the center.  The more obvious one was showing up against the sky in landscape photos. OK, time to order a Sensor Cleaning Kit? Maybe. First I decided to try a can of compressed air.  I lifted the mirror as per instructions, turned the camera in a downward direction, and blasted away.  Dust gone!!  I'm still going to order a cleaning kit for the day when compressed air does not do the trick.  But for now, I'm happy!
