    No matter how much you try to clean, dust is inevitable and will always be there. However unless you shoot at f22 against a bright blue sky, minor dust spots will not show up on your indoor shots.

    I have since stopped worrying about dust unless I go on a photographic trip that lasts for several days or more. Then I bring my cameras down to the Canon Service Centre for a thorough cleaning. (BTW they charge $20 + gst for sensor cleaning and takes about 1 hour to have it done!)

    Add to what Syl posted, you may also want to do the following whenever you can.
    - Avoid changing lens in dusty places (not always avoidable).
    - Facing body downwards when changing lenses, less chance of dust settling in.
    - Regularly clean (blow or dry-wipe) the mount on both the body and the lenses.
    - Regularly blow the sensor in a relatively minimal-dust environment.
    - Keep everything in a minimal-dust bag/cabinet.

    i've had my camera for over a year now and have only had one issue with a massive dust spot. it was huge! like a grain of sand i'm sure there are a few spots here and there, but who's pixel peeping?

    i also change my lens whenever i feel like and not worry so much about the environment that i change it in. small dust spots are nothing to worry about. just keep shooting!
