Currently I have a shutter count of 1,906. I took the following picture with the 20-300mm lens at 300mm at f/36. There are 4 spots: left top and bottom, top right and center.

If I compare these spots to the results of my first D800, I had like 50 to 100 spots with only 130 pictures taken. I don't think this new camera will develop the same problem after 1,900 pictures and with an almost clean image, and f/36 it's an extreme.
