Unhappy dust!

I think there are some dust particles somewhere inside my camera. I cannot figure out where exactly. when I look through the view finder I don't see any. but when I turn the camera around and look into the lens, I can see some dust particles. I changed the lens. they are still there. so it's not the lens. I blew some air into the mirror. still nothing. cleaned the view finder. no luck. also blew some air to the sensor with an air blower. I took a photo of a white A4 sheet. I cannot see any dust particles. so it should probably be the penta mirror. what should I do? do I have to freak out? lol I mean, it doesn't affect my photos, right? it still doesn't feel right though.

Re: dust!

If you are not seeing any spots on your pictures, and you cannot see them when looking through the viewfinder, I would not worry about it.
