100-400 sun shot. Any idea what those black dots on the sun are?
Dec 30, 2013

Dismal day here in Vietnam. Took my 100-400 out to get a shot of a sunken container ship but couldn't see it because of the smog/seamist. Was about to packup and go home and I noticed the sun trying to break through the smog and took this shot. Can anyone tell me what those black spots are on the 2nd crop? I doubt its dust on the sensor, (new 5dm3) and they certainly aren't on the outside of the lens. Any ideas?
