Has anyone experienced dust sensor issues that they can't clean off? I have a few on my X-T1 that I can't seem to get rid of. I've tried both of my lenses and used my rocket blower on the sensor glass multiple times. Below is as clean as I've gotten it - f/22 on my 10-24. Most of them start to go away quickly, but there's one spot that doesn't fade out until around f/8. The worst are the two sharp dark spots in the bottom left and the larger dot on the far left. In reality, I probably wouldn't notice these in most shots and they're easy enough to clone out if I did. Should I be worried about this and send it in or just deal with it? Is this just something you deal with using mirrorless cameras? I've always been able to get my 7D sensor spotless.

Ha. I have two bad spots on mine. Very visible at f8. Google "xt1 sensor dust" and you'll read about it. I'm sending mine into fuji to get cleaned in a week after my mountain trip.

I cleaned my own sensor today on my 5d..... What a wild ride. The cleaner left a film, so I had to use a lens pen to get that off and a q-tip for the edges and corners... Turned out well, but freaked out when the cheapo cleaning solution left a film. Really clean now.

sensor cleaning has always freaked me out. It's one of the big reasons I went from a 5Dc to a 5Dii (auto cleaning). I used to do wet copper hill cleanings and then you had to check between passes to see if you got it. Total PITA. Now with a loupe and a lens pen it's easier but I still don't like it. That's one of the pluses with an aps-c system though, it's MUCH less of an issue.

i have a question regarding AF of the X-T1

I have A7 and GH4, both of these camera when focus, a bunch of little square focus points jumping around to get my object in focus. With the X-T1, i only see one medium size square in the middle (area AF). I change the AF to multi and i do see the little square moving around but not a bunch of it, just one little square moving around. Am i setting something wrong here?

Got to play with a friend's Leica 50/1.4 Summilux-M on my X-E1 yesterday. It was the first time I really used an adapted lens on my Fuji-X cameras, and getting the focus spot on was not easy at all. Got so many shots where I missed focus :(
