did you check your very first shots with the camera? it is not unheard of a ricoh camera leaving the factory with dust spots.

No, I have deleted the first shots. I made them to get a feel of shooting with the GRIII, but I took your advice and I just checked all the shots that made during the last week ago and found that all the shots that I made with apertures from f/3.5 to f/16 also had these dust spots at the same place.

So, the problem is not from a new one from this morning, but from some time ago. Was it from the factory? I do not know.

Tomorrow morning I will bring back the camera to the shop where I purchased it. I know this shop to be highly professional and reliable. I hope I will get is back soon; I love this camera.

Thank you very much for your advice!

that sounds good.

also, most of the time you should be able to retrieve the deleted shots with a simple recovery software. actually they tend to work better with files on sd cards than hard disks.
