Hi Folks.  I am a brand new Sony a900 owner. I bought the camera used and I am concerned that the sensor is damaged based on the consistent appearance of a discolored portion in one part of every shot with several lenses, exposures, etc.  I did the cleaning program on the menu several times, I used a blower as was suggested by the Sony tech folks and I still see the mark appearing.  I have posted examples in my gallery and circled the problem.  The person that sold it to me is willing to take it back for a 10% restocking fee.  If the problem is just dirt I have a repair shop clean it. If it is actual damage I think I need to cut my losses and buy another used camera with a proper sensor.  Please let me know and thanks in advance for any help.

Did you try didfferent lenses?  Also please post some pictures so that we can see the issue you are referring to...?
