The most surprising thing to me about this whole thing is that I cannot see ANYTHING on the sensor. It LOOKS clean as the proverbial whistle.

I wouldn't be so excited about this were it not for the fact that I have never, ever, seen any contamination on any of my other m4/3rds cameras (a G1, two GH2s, and now the E-M5). My experience has been that the SSWF does an outstanding job of cleaning the sensor and my general lens changing practices and hygiene are very high.

Were you looking at the sensor with a sensor loupe? A really small speck on the AA filter would be impossible to see, otherwise. And actually, now that I think of it, I needed to use greater magnification (in my case, a 28mm f/2.8 lens) as a magnifier to see the unmovable dots on my camera, and to see that they were in a different plane of focus than ordinary dust.
