I got a repair order today. It only states "Dirt on sensor". No mention of oil or replacement parts. And of course the cleaning fee.I bought my D7000 on 10/15/2010, the day the local Best Buy received their first shipment. I have about 16,000 clicks on the shutter and I only started noticing the spots at about 14,000 actuations.Here's at test shot on a piece of paper just before I sent it in. I added a lot of contrast to expose the very faint spots. Just look for the round dots. The mottled look is from the paper.
