    I agree.

    I do a lot of paranormal investigation, having the flash guns set up on the optical slaves and tripods, helps illuminate large areas on a wide angle. The longer lenses are for wildlife and nature. Don't really use the umbrella or bounce card much, unless a family member wants me to take a photo of the kids or something (very rarely).

    Thats a handful of shots I have so far. The ghosty ones are on a separate site

    It doesn't look like failed pixels or a problem with the processor, like you say it looks like dust, or the coating has been scratched off the lens, or (if it's a bad job of coating) bubbled/pitted. It looks like the light is hitting it and being diffracted whatever it is.
