If they are spread across the frame.....then probably not oil....if they don't smear with a dry sensor brush...not oil...if just a few, normal for many DSLR brands.

"... if just a few, normal for many DSLR brands." - That is a news for me. I had different DSLRs, however never had spots on the sensor especially oil doplets.
Focus issues - yes. The AF MA function solves the problem.

So far I've found many (small percentage though) instances of it in other bodies. D700 especially. It seems much less common in consumer level entries like the D3000 for instance. I'm trying to understand the issue and gather information on it. Getting confirmed examples is harder than I thought though and I'm still working on a testing methodology that would be very simple and easy....hence my request for pics.
