Aargh! Fluff on my focus screen. I can see it through the view finder and it's driving me nuts.
The worst part: I'm on holidays and I left my rocket blower at home!
clean it off with a cleaning cloth, the focusing screen is not that delicate

Where is it, inside the viewfinder? That can't be good!
Photography is the art of telling stories with light.
Success with the blower now that I'm home.
With lens off if you looked up onto the focus screen you could see the fluff that looked exactly the same as what I saw through the viewfinder.
Moral of the story
1. Don't change lenses, especially if your sitting in the dryer ,
2. If you're going to change lenses, take your rocket blower on holidays.
Never had an issue with getting fluff on my focusing screen, I always have the body pointing downwards when changing lenses. Maybe I've just been lucky but I lens change is some pretty god awful environments, indoor climbing gyms full of chalk dust is the first I can think of.
I tend to stay out of the dryer when changeing my lens.
