Nubster I have dust on my sensor and it does show up in pictures. I have an air puffer, I just haven't tried cleaning it yet.

Patriot That's what I figured as non of the pictures had the particles in them. It's just annoying looking at them. I'll will probably wait until I get back stateside before I send it in to Nikon to have it cleaned. I tried a air rocket with no luck of blowing out any of it.

This!

If you have dust in the lens, it probably won't even show up on the shot. I have some small pieces of dust in my lenses and they never show up. The only thing you would want to clean in the front and back of the lens, as well as the sensor. Everything else should be fine. I've had a few on the mirror in the viewfinder, but those don't affect the shot. You can try using some canned air but I doubt it would help

Cleaning camera?

I need help determining where dust is in my camera. I look through the viewfinder and see dust and fibers, but the mirror, focus screen, and sensor are all clean. When looking at the dust it appears to be on multiple levels layered on top one another. When shifting my eye across the viewfinder I can see other specks come into focus while the other fade. This is hard to describe though. I'm thinking that the dust in on another mirror in the camera that I can't see between the main one and a smaller one before the view finder. I also think that it could be in the viewfinder itself but I don't see how this is possible.
