Re: Does this show a problem? Maybe...

also keep in mind I am doing most of the testing at f16 (sunny 16 rule). You dont want to see what f22 looks like

I have to agree.  With everything.  This isn't simply a matter of dust particles & does require a wet cleaning.  I had mine pretty much spotless, took maybe 20 shots, and the sensor then had about 14 new spots.  Cleaning it all the time is a bit annoying, but far less than having to PP all of the spots out.  I'm thinking of running it in machine gun mode for several hundred to a thousand shots at an upcoming event.  Maybe that will be enough to knock the majority of the loose oil off.
