[LRflex] Re: Water Spots?

Big problem David,
particularly with macro shots, at first I thought they were on the 
sensor, but taking a shot without a lens mounted got rid of that theory.
The spots are tiny (very tiny) spots or dust particles on the front and 
rear glass of the lens (so check both). I've never spent so much time 
cleaning lenses since I went digital.
Take a picture of a sheet of white paper, and you'll see exactly where 
they are.
cheers
