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

Thom Hogan, a well respected Nikon expert, has an excellent article on his website that goes into a lot of detail about cleaning Nikon sensors that you really should read. It provides a lot of information and should help address your concerns about damaging the sensor.

http://bythom.com/cleaning.htm

He points out that in Japan, Nikon sells a sensor cleaning kit with intstructional video to consumers. So, their postion in the US refusing to make this same kit available must have more to do with marketing than it does with the actual risk of damaging the sensor.

I hope this helps.
