I have the same weird spot. It's not evident in photos but with videos it is evident.

Using a 14x jeweler's loupe to examine the lens:

There is the cover that opens when the camera is switched on, thereunder is a flat plastic screen which seems to be in front of the lens; there is small dustpatch either on the back of this plastic cover on on the lens.

On other forums mention has been made of a dirty sensor.

I'm not too keen to approach Canon and have them gloat that the camera is out of warranty; ONCE again I've spent $500 getting a few thousand shots in an 18-month lifespan (see my other posts on Canon's sensor longevity).
