"RE: Could this be oil on the sensor?"

It could be oil, or some other contaminant like pollen, dust or others. There is a post pinned to the top of the D800 forum on sensor cleaning you should read.

Everyone is concerned about damaging their sensors, but it seems that the majority, including myself, feel that there are enough high-tech products on the market designed specifically for sensor cleaning, that if you carefully follow instructions, it can be done safely and is fairly easy to do. Read over the post, and see what you think. I was nervous the first time I did it, but quickly saw that it is not that big of a deal. Just be sure to read the instructions carefully, follow them closely, and you shouldn't have any problem.
