Horrified, I then set about cleaning all my lenses, front and back, only to find I still had the problem. I read in a magazine that a dirty sensor could be the problem, so I bought one of...

    Box wine??

    Last night my better half handed me a carrier bag and asked "Do you like box wine?" I took it from her and gave it a little shake, wondering why it wasn't making any sloshing noises. It was well wrapped up, and when I got to the last layer, I could see the tell-tale gold and black box with D7100...
