    Anything is possible. But changing lenses in a dusty area is a good way to get dust. Did the camera come with the lens on?

    well, your lens, in particular if you have a zoom lens, is not dust proof.

    also there might be some abrasion from the shutter blade, which settles on the sensor after a while.

    My sensor is cleaned with Eclipse E2... Now the CCD is clean... I don't want to remove the 50mm lens anymore. Because I don't have money for better lens now. I live in Europe, Romania and much dust exist here.

    I don't have a zoom lens, I use the 50mm f/1.8 lens. But I work in manual focus. Nikon D40X
    How often you clean the sensor?

    Dust can get in, even if you don't change lenses, as your camera is not dust proof. I just took my D70 for a dust clean after about 11,000 shots, because it was really really bad. After that until now, it's still clean.

    Most of all don't let it affect you! If you're going to be super careful about it, you won't have fun shooting outside.

    I saw a man yesterday with a nikon D2x just rip his lens off right in the middle of a park with the camera facing right up and he wasn't even bothered!

    I think, much sensor cleaning is not good for CCD. I clean the CCD myself but I use chemicals.
    Now I Think, why non DSLR cameras not has dust?

    I don't know how to solve this cleaning problem in future.. I hate dust.. And I get more dust facing camera down (is not a joke) especially with Blower..

    how could they possibly eliminate dust problems?

    But seriously...it's just dust...it comes off.

    Even if the system is sealed, dust is created inside the camera. Don't worry about it man...

    Yes I know, But I hate dust between F1.8 and F10 aperture, and cleaning the sensor often with chemicals is not a solution.

    I do the same thing with my camera. Are you going to miss an awesome shot because you didn't want to change lenses because of dust?

    I never worry about swapping lenses. I have been out quad riding, everything dusty, and didn't hesitate to swap out for a longer lens. Any dust issues I have had have been remedied by a cheap blower brush.
