How much is a sensor clean in the uk? It's something I've been meaning to do

From £24.99-£65 range from having a look around. Some of the higher priced ones provide couriers

I'm sorry - I don't notice anything TOO wrong with that shot - what are the points you're talking about?

I'm guessing they have been removed already.

I get a handful show up at f/11 upwards but they are faint. So far I've got away with just a rocket blower in over 2 years for 5D2 & since 2009 [well before as I bought that used] with the 450D.

Yes they had been removed. Here's before and after shots I took for comparison at f/16 of a blank white piece of card, I adjusted the blacks to help see them better.

Blimey that is some amount of crud in that first shot! Just a few more passes with a wet swab'll probably shift it though.

My 5DII was carrying a fair amount of dust too - not nearly as bad as that though, and nothing "welded on". Got it mostly clean on my second try. There's still a couple of dots right on one edge and in one corner but that's good enough for me.

Bridges in the Sun

I recently bought a Tokina 16-28mm f2.8. It's soooo wide and sooo sharp! I love it, but need to get a better handle on it. Ultra-wide angle is fun, but a lot trickier than I thought. :D
