Hi,

I've tried everything (cleaning, blowing, etc) but the dot is still there. Visible no matter what lens I use. But not visible to the naked eye.

Welcome to the forum. Take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt and Google everything. Like sensor cleaning for example.

So here's the real and honest truth. In the life of every camera, sooner of later, something wet and sticky (like flower pollen) will hit the sensor and it won't either shake or blow off and you have to up the ante a little. I like the SensorKlear Lens Pen kit  but others will have other suggestions.
