    Nothing wrong with your lens. Sensor has a dead pixel. Should be repaired.

    The "Red Planet" - maybe it is Mars...


    I am just trying to help lighten your mood, probably should send it back for repair.

    ^Mars haha

    That's a stuck-on pixel not dead. Not that it matters... lol.

    It's extremely common as far as I knew and obviously you could fix that easily in PP. If warranty covers it and it bothers you though, by all means send it in.

    Yeah, it's normal for all dslr's to have hot pixels, as I learned a few weeks ago. No repair needed. To make it less obvious, you could try reducing ISO and/or shutter speed, as those two factors seem to intensify the problem.

    If it's brand new & under warranty, then get it fixed. If it's not under warranty, I wouldn't worry about it. Unless you happen to have a dark solid background like this photo, you aren't going to notice it 99% of the time.

    Thanks! I just cant believe that a brand new $900 camera would have that problem already!
    It is covered under warranty, i just don't want to send it in and wait to get it back!
    :meh:
