Dust marks on sensor..

I have seen a camera but is does have 2 dust marks on the sensor.

Is this a big issue for a FZ18 camera or that matter any camera.
The seller says 'The sensor does have two dust marks, see last photo, these are only apparent under extreme exposure conditions, and the largest is at the bottom of the frame, hence will not affect sky detail.'

Whats the forums opinion. Is it worth going for.

Hi Ubdai,

I would be seriously worried about a sealed lens camera,that has dust marks on the sensor.

I.E How could you clean the sensor,It's sealed.??

If they are on the lens itself,easy to clean.
