Default 10D image 'spots'

I'm new to the DSLR world. I took home my second 10D yesterday, took immediate test shots of clear blue sky and have multiple dark spots on the image. This is reproducible image to image in the same locations on the image. Had same problem with the 1st camera, of course in differrent locations on the image. This setup is a new body and lens! Looks like they are on the sensor as they are sharply defined, but this is out of the box. Anyone have any info?

It doesn't sound this is right, but the first thing which came to mind was a hot pixel (or dead pixel.) Normally they are white, not black.

There is software to detect them, its at:

But if you use the search engine here, search for "hot pixel" and make sure to select all words (not any words) and you'll find the topic very quickly.

Can you post an example picture somewhere?
