I recently had more problems with it than ever. Used to be dust free for weeks-months, now one shoot can come back with 5 visible dust spots :/

Is a pain only if you have a phobia of cleaning your sensor and the fear is totally unwarranted for IMHO.

Take a piece of ordinary plastic lens and wipe it with your shirt for an entire day and chances is that they will still be no scratches. ;)

I have no phobia of cleaning my shoes but getting them muddy is still a pain :p

Well for me, I simply unmount the lens and wipe the optical low-pass filter around with SensorKlear. Painfree execution in under 1 minute.

Here is the lab test result for lenspen cleaning efficiency for anyone that is interested. ;)

Just got my Lenspen sensor loupe and sensor pen too, works amazingly well. The link however, is for lenspen on lenses not sensors though...

As far as I am concern, the optical anti-aliasing or low-pass filter directly in front of the sensor is a piece of glass too so technically you are cleaning a glass and not the sensor itself. ;p

They are still made of completely different materials though - but I digress. OT too much :p

for me i think prevention is better than cure. i wear glasses using zeiss lens and even so scratches are unavoidable. i will probably use a blower to do a level 1 & 2 maintenance. otherwise will probaby send it for professional cleaning.

lol. on screen yes. technically 6 out of 9 or 67% say dust is a pain one way or the other.
The poll is rigged! It's designed to make dust a pain (one way or the other) :sweatsm:

Use olympus, best anti-dust for sensor :)
The way I change lense will make other people scream, or at least jawdrop. LOL

It's part of the pleasure of digital photography.

That reminds me I need to get a bottle of pure methanol if I want to continue to enjoy the pleasure. :bsmilie:
Whoa! Kinky!! :cheers:
