Re: My GH3 has sensor dust!

Don't worry too much about dust at F22.  If it starts to show up at more "normal" apertures or it's showing up in regular pics, then you should clean it.

Also, try switching to a different lens and see if it changes.  You can get dust in the lens or on the back element that can cause dust spots.  For example, my Panasonic 12-35 lens shows 2 distinct spots when at F22, but are not noticeable at all at F16 and lower.  When I switch to my 35-100, the spots are gone, so it's definitely the lens.

Rocket blower is a definite must have for any interchangeable lens camera.

Can you post a pic of the spots without all the green circles?
