RP Dirty Sensor Advice

Long time lurker, this is my first post and I'd really welcome some advice.

I purchased an RP "used-acceptable" at a price more than 30% below its current RRP. It looks brand new and feels like a bit of a bargain, but...

When it arrived it had no body cap on it and the sensor was exposed such that it was covered in dust - see sky pic. Bit frustrating as the body cap was in the packaging, presumably whoever had ordered it previously just hadn't put it back on. It's a great camera and I'm loving getting to know how it works.

Having cleaned it about 5 times using blower and swabs, I've got it to the point of the second pic (both shot at f22 to test for dust). There are still marks on it - my question; am I being too picky, was it just so scruffy that it needs more swabbing or should I cut my losses and return it within the 30 days?

Apologies with the pics, blue skies have been in short supply over the weekend!
