Did you get your problem fixed?
I purchased a "giottos" rocket air blower, it got most of the dust spots but I still have this one spot that does not go away.

i have the k-r, i have the camera set up to use the dust removal system every time the camera starts up. do you think this is actually worth while? (referring to rhermans comment)

Eric, I have a Sony A300, which shakes the sensor at shutdown. I have owned the camera since Oct 2008, have shot nearly 5,000 pics, and used my rocket blower only once, about four months ago.

"do you think this is actually worth while? (referring to rhermans comment)"

Absolutely. Just consider it another helping hand in the fight against sensor dust.
Always use tasteful words - you may have to eat them.
You cannot find knowledge by rearranging your ignorance.

Guys I don't wanted to say that shaking the sensor doesn't help, but it only helps and is not always a solution.

Thanks for all the information and advice. I got a blower. It took a few tries, but it cleared it up.
