Your arguments make sense to me, Douglas!  I only get the spots when 
using the 400 Telyt with the 2x converter! 

Figure that one out!

Yet I do not see it as possible that dust on the lens (sooooo far out of 
the plane of focus) could cast any sort of shadow on a film/sensor plane.

I'm bamboozled, but will try cleaning - 1st the sensor, then the glass.  
Just as soon as I find the time!
