    Sassan, this is not a "problem" you need to understand all DSLR cameras will accumulate dust/oil on the sensor with heavy usage. I can't say my 1DX II is any worse than my other Canons. If you inspect it at f/22 many small particles will show but at f/4 or f/5.6 it will not be visible. you need to clean your sensor periodically with any camera. I usually only clean when I can see a dust spot in my photos as opposed to taking test shots at f/22 and then looking for it

    Hi ari

    I have never seen such an issue in any DSLR cameras except Nikon D600 that made Nikon replace it with D610 as they could not fix the oil spatter .

    Hi Sassan, if you check your camera at f/22 you I'm almost certain you'll see some dots. It's a bit worse for cameras that shoot at 10+ fps as the mirror moves so fast.

    I am not happy because I've replaced 1DXMKii with 5DMK4 and this is very painful for me! i hope 5DMK4 is perfect body for me

    Sasan I own two MK2's and never have experienced the issue you have mentioned. In addition, I previous owned two 1DX MKI's and never had an issue. I would send it back to Canon if it's within two years of purchase which it would be and I am sure they would sort it out FOC.

    As for the 5D I would check the sharpness, as have tested both bodies and we found the AF was out on numerous 1DXMK2/5D bodies, corrected by the AF Micro Adjustment, but Canon's calibration is far more refined.

    I don't understand what Sassan meant above, i.e. if he did buy the camera and had a problem with it or he did not buy the camera because he read about this problem and that changed his mind, at any rate the 5D4 is not a substitute for a 1DXII.
