Default New 5700 complete with hot pixels?

Picked up a new 5700 yesterday and just noticed it has a couple of hot pixels. They're visible on every picture I've taken so far and as soon as I spotted them they started to burn holes in my brain.

They've become something that I've seen that I can't "un-see" Now that I know where they are they stand out like boogers on my images.

Should I take the camera back and exchange it for another one?

I had the same problem with my CP 4500 the day that I bought it.

Unfortunetly there was no stock available from the importer so I had to have the hot pixel mapped out.

The importer did it on the spot, it took about 15 minutes. The camera seems to be working fine now, I hope that this is not to be an on going problem.

My CP950 after nearly 3 years use has also develpoed a hot pixel.

Default Good News!

I was able to exchange the camera for another one. The folks at the store were very understanding. New unit looks good. I've done a dozen or so test shots and everything looks normal.
