Day Two after about a dozen frames the first two spots -small ones but clearly visible - appeared on the sensor. This time the blower did not get them off.

Time to order that Copper Hill cleaning kit.

I just got a new fancy car, damm it is leaking a bit of oil in the garage.  I'll just buy some extra towels and dry it up.  The reaility is that a few spots of oil in my garage is less a factor on the impact of my fancy new expensive car then oils spots now appearing on my pictures.  Why consumers accept this is beyond me!

Now that I've gotten an eye for the stuff, I can look and its starting to show up in my second D600 body on almost any sky backaround candid shot at F8-F11, simply not acceptible that the fix is ME cleaning versus the manufacture taking responsibility and fixing it.
