Recently I noticed smudges on my photos and I couldn’t use a diaphragm higher then 6 otherwise the spots would be clearly visible on all photo’s. The auto-cleaning didn’t help a bit. After some googling, I assumed I would have to have the camera cleaned professionally.
Nevertheless, I bought a rocket blower (at a local camera shop for a couple of euros) and after 1 minute of blowing, the result is excellent!!! Almost everything is gone. I’m completely satisfied! These two pictures are taken before and after the cleaning. It’s my computer monitor from up close (out of focus).
I posted these pictures to give an example of how good the result can be with only a rocket blower, because most posts on the internet about this subject are very pessimistic.
Zoom in for more detail. Good luck!
