if u keep it, u really have only a couple of choices.

1. send it to nikon and let them do their "fix". if it works, you'll reduce your frequency of required cleaning. if it doesn't work, send it in again and push-push-push. yes, what a pain!

2. get the copperhill basic kit and clean. blow first (always) and wet clean as required. when i wet clean, i have no visible spots up to f32 or more.

generally: check and clean before a product shoot. do a quick sensor check every once in a while until u get control of the problem. u could check by snapping a quick jpg of a white piece of paper. and zoom in on the lcd. the check shouldn't take more than a minute. have your copperhill swab ready-to-go. with practice, you'll be able to check and clean inside of 5 minutes.

yes, not fun.

Did ALL.....except wet clean.

Hi Peter,

I don't know how many actuations you have on the camera, but whatever causes the sticky spots seems to go away after 3000 although mine took about 5000. A wet clean is for me a necessary skill for any DSLR as I shoot outdoors and accumulate all manner of dust and debris.

But I can assure you the frequency of needed cleanings drops significantly to normal intervals.

Cheers,

S
