    Hi, everyone. I just bought a new E-PM2 from Amazon two weeks ago. I am moving up from point-and-shoot cameras, and an Olympus ultra-zoom, so I have never messed with an exposed sensor before. Today I notice that I have some tiny spots in my pictures. Troubleshooting the issue by taking a picture in manual focus with the lens cap on, with both the 14-42 kit lens and the 40-150 lens, and both show spots in the same place. From visually looking at the camera sensor, I don't see anything obvious. Hopefully this isn't expected behavior. Do I need to get something to blow the sensor or otherwise clean it? Should the self-cleaning take care of it? Or should I just return it to Amazon? I've attached the two lens cap pictures in case that helps.

    Really appreciate any help. I've been reading up a bunch on these forums in the last two weeks, and before when I decided to go micro 4/3. Thanks!

    Thanks so much - that fixed it! Much easier than returning it!
