    Note to newbies: sandblasting is NOT an approved method of cleaning sensors Smile

    Depends how you cleaned it, If its a relatively new body it could be grease.

    My experience,

    I have had two 1DM3 bodies and had to go through the same initial process of cleaning with each:-

    First by blower, blew more muck on than removed

    Second Artic butterfly, removed some dust but smeared grease

    Third wet clean, several cleans required on first appearance to clear all marks, less cleans required on subsequent occasions, and sometimes the blower on its own is successful.

    Cheers Neil, I think your spot on ! (scuse the pun)

    I tried the artic butterfly and yep greased it up, I have since used liquid hopefully it should become less attractive to dust.

    See the new DYCAN MK3

    Not just a Canon thing....Had the same happen on one of my Nikon bodies, When it was new.....Sad

    That said once you get rid of the grease ( And bath your Butterfly in the special cleaning stuff ) The problem seldem happens again..Smile

    If it's any consolation to you DSLR sensor gents, I spent 2 hours today getting dust & minute particles off my film SLR viewfinder focus plate - having inadvertantly left it without a body cap for 10 minutes. I won't be that careless again. Smile
