Camera Flaw, warranty repair?

I have attached 3 photos, highlighting a camera flaw I noticed today. Would this warrant a replacement at an apple store?

I have applecare+, but I would assume there would be no charge?

Thanks

It looks like dust but well worth having Apple look at it.

I cleaned the camera with ethanol (70%) and microscope grade lens whip. There appears to be a flaw in the lens, when I put it under a brightfield microscope...but i wouldn't think that little speck would create that...but I am no camera expert.

I got a Genius Bar appointment Sunday. I'll update this thread then.

It doesn't seem wide spread enough, yet, to be a software issue.

That is pretty noticeable. Wouldn't hurt to make an appointment with a Genius to have a look at it and see what they'll say.
