    Picture at bottom,

    So i just bought a A6000 new about 4 days ago, i also got the 55-210 zoom lens with the camera, as well as the kit lens.

    So the zoom lens arrived today and i pop it on and take a few hundred shots. After reviewing the shots on my pc i notice 2 spots on my images. So i make a white screen, set iso to 100 and f f to 29 and and bam! there are spots everywhere. 3 are easy to see but there are around 10 or more faint ones, if you look harder.

    Since getting the camera i have only changed the lens once! That was today, the zoom lens, So the total time the camera was open was about 4-5 seconds and i made sure to have it facing down as well.

    I've tried using the cameras auto sensor cleaning tool in the menu multiple times to no avail.

    Can this much dust get on the sensor in a brand new camera with such little opportunity?

    Much thanks for any help.

    Are the spots always in the same places?

    Since they are always in same places they are either on the sensor or the lens. If the spots are still there after you've cleaned the lens I'd contact Sony. This is not acceptable for a new camera.

    I have had the same thing happen to me with my zoom lens on.
    So a manual clean of the sensor and got clear shots after that.
    The way I cleaned mine isn't recommended but it worked for me.
    But if it is new like your one I would listen to Andy.
