Arghhh! I've scratched my Nikon D4 sensor

After only a few days of ownership I needed to remove a few specks of dust on the sensor of my much beloved Nikon D4.

I couldn't move them with a blower, so I resorted to the sterile swabs and sensor cleaning fluid that I've used many times before on my D3

Honestly, I was really careful!

After about 4 attempts I checked the sensor (or really the anti-alias filter) and to my horror saw a long scratch. Never again will I use the swabs.

I live close to Nikon's Service center in El Segundo California. I plan to take my D4 there soon and get an estimate.

I'm hoping they'll be able to replace the AA filter and not the entire sensor. I'll let you guys know.
