Now here's what i think after i've cleaned the sensor and back of filter glass.

Having disassembled my GR when it reached a situation worse than what you describe (also having a stuck lens and more dust spots), I can say that all your points are completely valid and couldn't agree with you more. Hope people will bookmark your post, it's an excellent summary.

My bottom line about dust and the GR generally : if you live or take photos in dusty surroundings, dust is going to get into your GR, sooner or later. Ricoh could have caused it to be only "later" and even "much later" - but they made their design and business choices knowing that "sooner" will also be an option, and that is of course their right.
