    Scratch or dirt on the sensor?

    Scratch on the mirror won`t affect the image, as just Googled it. It could be a Hair on the sensor.

    Dust on sensor more than likely.
    Do the usual check by taking a pic at f16 or f22 of a bright plain subject - overcast sky/white wall/blue sky.

    A similar pic at f2.8 or so will probably not show the mark.

    Pretty sure it'll be a fine hair on the sensor. Probably hardly visible to the naked eye.

    I think it could be a hair as I had one a couple of years ago, and using a RB got it off.

    Someone has drawn on your sensor with a purple felt tip

    Have you been shooting anywhere where theres been a laser show? I have seen something similar (not quite the same) but that was burned into the sensor by a laser show.

    Probably a hair on the sensor or somewhat less likely that bird has crapped on the lens

    I think it is fine hair on sensor because it can affect like this as you shared in the image. I also had this sort of thing in my image but unfortunately I don't have that image with me longer else I would surely share over here.

    If you Google Hair on camera sensor, it will show you that is what you have. A lot of the photos that come up are just like yours.

    Invest in a Rocket blower and read up on how to clean the sensor. Looking at that picture it looks like a hair so maybe a blast with a Rocket will clear it. Contamination on the sensor is sadly a fact of life and unfortunately you'll see this or more likely spots again so I recommend Googling and reading upon cleaning the sensor and maybe watching some YouTube vids too.

    The good news is it's a faff and annoying but not something to worry too much about.

    Hair on sensor. You have to be very fussy and fast about changing lenses because it can be a nightmare once crap gets into the camera
