The little dry spots?  I don't know but I'll be watching while someone else makes a reply / guess.  This link doesn't answer your question but here is one link someone posted regarding tomatoes. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/gardens-gardening/your-garden/help-for-the-home-gardener/advice-tips-resources/visual-guides/tomato-fruit-problems.aspx

There have been others but I didn't bookmark them.  Have you used the Search feature? There may be a link in one of them that will help.

Are you using any vinegar around them?  I'm thinking over-spray...

Okay...  you might try looking here:

http://vegetablemdonline.ppath.cornell.edu/DiagnosticKeys/TomLeaf/TomLeafKey.html

that might help narrow it down...

I'd do the research myself, but gotta get back out before it starts raining again.

Let me know if this helps, please.

Are these spots only on the lower leaves?
Are you watering at the soil level or shower spray above the plant?

I lean toward water damage as the rest of the foliage looks great.
Take the damaged leaves off and voila! the plant looks terrific!! Very Happy

Please give a photo of a broader view of the whole plant. Perhaps I am seeing a bit of yellowing in some of the leaves? yes/no?

The affected leaves are mid plant. 
Other leaves are turning yellow a bit. 

My other cherry in the other bed is fine. Same strain. Same soIl.

Hmm. well it looks pretty good. If I may suggest, just pick off the affected leaves and make sure to water at the soil level. I would top dress this bed with a few inches of quality compost, as the yellowing is possibly indicative of needing fertilization. Tomato plants are heavy feeders. The few inches of top dressing will act as a feed and a mulch.
