I have a D500

I started doing some macro now and when I take a picture and look on the back screen of the camera to see if it's in focus (with the magnification button), I see black dots on one part of the picture.

I see them only on the black screen and when I do the magnification only

They are like cloudy.

Is this sensor pollution? Could it be from the focusing screen?

I don't know what it is but the LCD doesn't use the focusing screen so it certainly isn't that.

Do the dots appear in the final photo?

It drives me mad

I'm happy for anyone to edit any of my photos and display the results
