I'm learning my new Canon 5D, and it's great, except that spots are showing up in the images, consistently in the same pattern, mostly visible against a clear sky, etc. Could this be dust inside, on the sensor or mirror? I can't see anything & the camera is brand new & hasn't been exposed to any environmental factors that would have gotten dust inside.

Re: spots on images
Spot is dust on the sensor. unfortunately, you will have to clean your sensor by yourself (it cost 30$ in a shop) There a fonction in the menu that up the mirror so you can access the sensor. very carefull. the pixel are so small that you can not see the dust but they are there!. caution, you need to put your body on a pod, have a good light to see what you make and some adapted items to clean the sensor. If not neede, avoid liquids. good luck and don't panic.

Are you sure what's on the sensor isn't dust and not oil? Cleaning a sensor is a delicate operation though I've done it in the field where I had no options to save a shoot. If there is actual debris on the sensor and it cannot be CAREFULLY removed with a LIGHT, INDIRECT burst of air or a very clean, fine lens brush then I'd send it in to have it professionally clean. Canon has a fast turnaround time and pretty reasonable.
when you use the full auto mode, the body take jpeg images in sRGB mode. And it create a different folder for those, but perhaps your computer is tune to get THIS folder. So when you leave the full auto mode, the 5D create a second folder for new images. Try to open directly the 5d volume on your computer (in windows, configuration panel, on a mac, it mount automatically on desktop) and go into DCIM folder. see? there is two folders, aleluia.
It's 99% dust, especially if it appears mostly in smaller apertures (<f/8). To test it, select a small aperture (e.g. f/16) and take a photo of a blue sky. The spots will show consistently on the same location.
They're hard to clean, so chances are you just missed them. Try again, or, better still, send it for cleaning to a professional.
