First spec of dirt

One thing I have to say for Olympus, their anti-dirt filter actually works.  I wet clean my Canons at least a few times a season (especially my 5D2), but have never found the need with any of my m43... at least until a few weeks ago, when I noticed a huge HAIR casting a shadow on some of my pictures!  Pulling off the lens revealed a large metal fiber caught up near the throat of the mount, not touching the sensor (pretty sure it is the chrome paint peeling off the mount of my 45-175x).  My sister-in-law did get a huge blob on her EPL5 pictures recently, but I killed it with a quick blast from the rocket blower.  Considering how exposed these sensors are, it is a good thing that the system works this well.
