I personally don't have a K-5 so have never experienced the stain issue, but I've seen photos.

I'd say it's similar to dust on the sensor. Visible mostly in blue sky shots or blank walls or similar scenes mostly when stopped down and fixable by cloning out.

Only difference being you can get dust off the sensor, but you can't get the oil stains off the sensor. So cloning out dust works as a temporary fix but you wouldn't want to rely on cloning as a fix for stains.

Thanks and regards.
