Hi Kid,

First: if you have not noticed any dust or stains until now, it does not seem to be a problem for you if you have!
Second: put your camera in Av mode, set it in the smallest aperture (probably f22), take 3 pictures of the sky.
If you see specs on all 3 pictures on the same place (x,y) in these pictures, you have either dust, stains or both.
Third: follow the link given to see how stains look like
Fourth: most camera's have dust on the sensor. See one of the many posts on this forum how to deal with that.
Fifth: if you have stains, contact your supplier.

Cheers, Bert
