    So, it's about that time I guess that I venture into sensor cleaning. I've got some dust that's stuck on the damn sensor that I can notice just barely at 5.6 and can defiantly see at 8.0.

    My problem is there are so damn many solutions out there how do you know what's best? I just want something that'll be easy, and have a low chance of me messing up my sensor...

    Suggestions?

    Sensor wipes are super easy. Worked well for me.

    Yeah, I know... What about the Sensor Scope system? They've got that locally with the magnifier loupe, and the swabs, and all that shit, but it's like $120, wondering if it's really worth it.
