Looks bad. How did it get this way? Did you buy the camera new or used?

I've only had mine a few weeks. I know the oil is a common issue because it shoots at 14 fps, so you get a little oil splatter initially. I'll check mine to see if I have any of those metallic looking specks.

I probably won't get to it until the weekend however, so bear with me.

It's bad enough that the camera should be returned to the store where bought and an exchange or refund requested. Either that or sent to Canon for repair. Those metallic particles alone are unacceptable.

If they are indeed metallic particles then something is seriously wrong.
If the camera is in warranty you should send it back.

Well, I did check mine. I only have around 500 shots on mine but it doesn't look anything like that.

Those spots don't look like metal particles to me. They look like dust. I have the same kind of donut looking things on my sensor but not so much. I remove them with a blower and dry sensor swab.

I too think that you are just seeing some very strong specular highlights from normal dust/small fibers in the mirror box thanks to the very intense level of light being shined in there. Yes the sensor needs a bit of a clean, I guess you might have got one with the higher end of the amount of lube used in the assembly of the mechanical systems. Better a little on the generous side, than not enough I would think, although it might need a couple of cleanings before it fully settles down. As someone else said, that is one of the drawbacks of a system that can run at 14 fps. I'm sure that you would be even less happy if one of the mechanical parts failed early thanks to lack of lubrication during assembly.

The metal filaments looks like fiber and oil is just... oil. Gotta keeps those parts greased up for 14fps.

looks like fiber-like dust stick on grease and oil. if after cleaning, the problems still appear, you many want to send back for a exchange (assuming under warranty)....
