LOOK MA, THEY'RE GONE! (How to Eliminate Black Dots)

Just picked up my 5dII, and sure enough, I see black dots out of the box.

At iso 400 and iso 6400, with a 50/1.8 and 85/1.2L II. I took a few dozen shots, and they are easily duplicated.

I then turned the settings to "Disable" for highlight tone priority, lighting optimizer and noise reduction.

No black dots.

I have only had the camera for an hour, but hopefully this solves the problem. Any other 5dII owners - please give it a try.

Default settings top iso 6400/400
optimizer/noise reduction disabled iso 6400/400
