Got some specks on the veiwfinder... I guess I should test to make sure the sensor is clean...

Anyone have any tips?

Go outside and take shots of a blue sky with aperture as small as possible (largest f stop). Any dust on your sensor will show up clear as day.

If it's cloudy, do it indoors with highest ISO possible and shoot a white wall.

Usually spots on the viewfinder are not indicative of problem. With the mirror in position, you are not exposing the sensor until you actuate the shutter...

Tip: Don't worry about it -- you have a new camera, right? I don't think you've pulled
the lens off very times yet, have you?

I have not swapped the lens out exept maybe 3-4 times. I have to test the sensor out to make sure it is clean, but at this point I dont think its on the sensor.

I will take Alex's suggestion and try the sky shot tomorrow or the white wall.

Thanks Alex and Jon.
