No drama, I'm becoming frustrated when I see new spots after only 20 or so shots.

How many actuations do you have on it to date?

3000, I share it's use with 3 other cameras (d-300/2, Kodak slr/n, and the D-600). I use it when I want bigger files.....and they match the other Nikon's color and look. So in 9 months there isn't a lot of use. I am frustrated that I see spots on EVERY job from a new or near new piece of equipment.

Yea, that's a pain for sure. I can't remember - have you wet cleaned it yet? In my case, after two wet cleans that were about a month apart, the problem had already decreased quite a bit. And to be sure, it required a wet clean. Literally by April or so (about 5000 actuations by then), I was getting normal dust accumulation.

Oh - sorry, I also meant to ask how many shots since R&R by Nikon? It makes me wonder if they merely cleaned your AA filter. Care to send a sample shot - infinity focus at the sky, +3 exposure, f22? I'm very curious what this problem looks like when people are getting their cameras back from Nikon.

I didn't test when it came back...I assumed it was clean. I won't wet clean till it is out of warranty. (If I keep it)

But it looks bad now I assume? So any idea of how many shots you've fired since? I'd be very interested to see a sample and how it's distributed etc.

By the way - I wet cleaned a couple of times and still sent it in for warranty. They didn't balk. It might be worth it to see if maybe the stuff clears and stays clear. That is, unless you're already leaning toward getting rid of it.

Actually, to answer your original post, if you wet clean and the particles clear, you can sell it as "fixed" and clean, but with no guarantees. But then if you do clean it and the particles clear and stay away, I guess you'll keep it? Either way, I think you need to wet clean it really well at least once.
