    A black dot? No, vignetting shouldn't look like a dot. Vignetting is where the 4 corners are fading to black. If vignetting is extreme enough, it will be all around the edges too.

  5. I just need to clean the lens then?
     
  6. Sensor looks okay, the lens was a little bit dirty... I was shooting loft apartments that were under construction...

    it takes a large chunk of dust on the lens to show up like that. you shot at f/22, so it's most likely on the sensor.
     
  8. Any idea of how this happens?

    when you take your lens off to look at your sensor (and are probably only looking at the mirror). dont take your lens off unless you have to, hold camera lens pointing down when you change lenses, dont drop it.

    Plus you could upgrade to the XTi and use the vibrating censor!

    /sarcasm
     
  11. Can anyone offer hints on how to get both the window with the room, and also outside? Not one or the other?

    You forgot to mention that the camera should be off during a lens change. The electrostatic charge built up on the sensor is like a dust magnet.

    That should help cut down on the vignetting.

    Or just use sensor cleaning mode? :dunno: Cause I don't think my shutter will stay open unless there is power holding it up. :mamoru:
