% of k5 showing stains on sensor?

was all set to buy a k5 this week and this appears since would be getting it online having to send it back would be a real pain in the ass so does anyone have any idea what sort of percentage of cameras are showing this problem?

48 hours into the start of this discussion, probably not. Perhaps this thread can be used for single k5 owner posts to indicate their serial number and whether they have seen the issue. I'll start with:

Serial #3836 and I do have sensor spots at small apertures that are not dust.
