dSLR sensor cleaning

28 August 2012 - 06:31 PM

Yesterday I was shooting a landscape with my two months old D800 (the camera has 8700 clicks). When reviewing the pictures I noticed that the sensor was covered with dozens of drops of oil. A Nikon representative did not deny it and took the camera for service. Apparently this happens with new cameras or so I was told. Is this really normal?
Would you send your brand new camera for service or simply clean it yourself? The Nikon representative strongly advised me to send it to a Nikon service centre.
The service centre is in US and it is going to take weeks before I get my camera back. Back to DX for a while...
