What's going on? Had my sensor cleaned by a Canon authorized repair shop on my 5D M2 about 3 months ago because I saw a series marks at the same place on every image. Got it back, about a month later spots appear in another area.

Took it into Canon this time and paid again for a cleaning.This was about a month ago.
Now I see another spot!
So obviously this is dust issue rather then a dirty sensor, am I right?

I don't change lenses too often. The 17-40L is my work horse lens which stays on about 90% of the time.
Is there something I can do on my own without taking it back in? Thanks.

I first thought this post was meant to be funny but it appears you're serious.

How long have you been using a DSLR? Dust is part of the game. Learn how to clean your sensor and you will laugh when people say they are worried about dust.
Do a google search and enough will come up to keep you reading all weekend.
