Pictures have two little, very annoying,round shadows always in the same position.I ' ve cleaned the lens again and again without improvements. The shadows are even evident in lcd. (and without memory card)
Any hints on which is the reason? What could i do before giving it back? Thanks!

If the camera is new, you should take it back to the store and get a new one. If not, you must send it in to Sony for a cleaning. I haven't experienced dust on the sensor but this could be it.

That looks like dust on or near the sensor. You'll notice it more at longer focal lengths and smaller apertures (represented by larger f/stop numbers).

You see this problem reported from time to time. In fact, I know of a Sony DSC-W1 owner that got two cameras in a row with this problem. Here are some examples of it:

I'd check with your vendor and see if they will swap it out for you.

Holding a strong vacuum cleaner close to the optics of a DSC-P200 removeda suddenly appearingspot: the vaccuum cleaner probably suckedout a foreign dust particle.
