Camera diagnostic testing

I have noticed in my holiday photos that there was some gunk showing up on the images, but before paying to have the sensor cleaned I wanted to figure out if it was on the lens or on the sensor.

So, I took some test shots of bright blue sky, with two different lenses, and I think the results are pretty obvious.

17-85

70-300

Gross.  Off to get that sensor cleaned.  I have been recommended to a place in London that does the cleaning on a walk-in basis.  I’ll let you know how it goes, and will post a link if I’m happy with the service.

Now to find a photoshop wiz to fix the photos from Greece and Italy:-)
