I dont understand why but this is the 3rd time since I got my D800 that I had to clean my censor because of oil spots... last time was only 2 weeks ago and now I have 3 oil spots again.
Is there something wrong with my camera ???

Jaques, Check some earlier threads on this subject. What you're experiencing is far from unusual. There's nothing wrong with your camera. From personal experience with the D3 and D2x, plus what I'm seeing now with my D800, until you get up around a couple thousand shutter actuations the oil spots are going to keep coming.

I had a D7K that was that way. But my D800 is spotless lucky I guess.

I'm having the exact same problem with my D800.

It's a bit annoying, but there isn't much you can do other than keep cleaning as necessary.
