Are these the infamous D7000 oil sports?
Mar 31, 2012

Hi Folks, can anyone tell me if the marks on the sensor that you can see in this image are oil spots or dust?

It seems no matter how often I clean the sensor I can't get it to stay clean.

ALso I read somehere (probably these forums) that oil spots tend toward being dark rings. Several of the marks in this image appear to me to have dark rings, e.g.9,12,18,20 - as well as others.

The camera is under warranty still, but I want to find out if this is a problem that will be fixed under warranty or not.

I've also uploaded it to my webserver as I'm not sure that the version on the DPR gallery will be big enough to see.
