Foreign objects on the sensor would I think always leave a dark mark as they would protect/block the pixels from receiving light. My answer to dirty marks / bits / hairs on thr sensor is to remove the lens and take a shot (camera pointing down) of a piece of pale even coloured paper. This I then import into my software and darken down until I can see all the problems.....I will add this is not for the faint hearted as the results can be a real surprise. You can use the image zoom in the likes of Photoshop to have a good look at your problem. The main plus point is as long as your monitor is clean what you see is what you have got on the sensors outer skin....the secret is deciding what you need to worry about and what to ignore and deal with in software. I am of the opinion that it was on the subject but without the ability to look at the raw file at a bigger enlargement there is little we can do but guess.

It will have been on the flower. The depth of field is too shallow for a hair on your kit to render so sharply.

So, let's get this right. You've taken 4 (four) pictures only of a flower. On only one of them you can see a hair. The hair is in focus. And you haven't taken any other pictures since then? In which case my only question is why?

Why what? The four pictures were not of one flower - there is one picture of a chrysanth (the one with the hair), there are two of a lily, and there is one of an alstromeria.. The Chrysanth picture is the only one that has a light area in the bottom left quarter of the image. The other three are all very dark in that area. As I have said above this is a new camera and I am still getting used to it (having moved from a full frame DSLR to a mirrorless full frame). I am still in the process of trying different lenses on the camera and had just attached one of my lenses from the full frame DSLR using an adapter. I wanted to see how it faired in terms of noise, focus, etc. I didn't taken any more pictures as the mirrorless camera's battery does not hold its charge as well as the DSLR and the battery was low when I started. I have not yet bought a spare battery - early days - so I decided to look at these 4 images and also give the battery a bit more time to charge. The hair photo was the first image I took and the first I processed. Is that OK?

I know I've tried cloning spots of images before, and the spot was on the monitor. Oops.
