Note: Cleaning the sensor has gotten to become a necessity. You now have many choices for sensor cleaning. Please review these choices and the companies behind them very carefully. Some companies list no phone number or other contact info other than an email address. None have the backing of any camera manufacturer. None have bothered to submit their product to any manufacturer to test. None offer live tech support or other help. None state the conditions under which their products are made. None have been selling swabs for as long! One company even claims they were the first with cleaning products - they did not exist in 2003!
