does it matter? fact is when you change the lens on a mirrorless camera the sensor is exposed to the world and when you change the lens on a DSLR, the sensor is behind a closed shutter

What matters to me is the topics: whether the mirror protects the sensor from dust, and whether the glass on the sensor somehow attracts dust when the camera is turned on. In my opinion neither is true.

which one do you think will get the most dust???

My answer would be that it would depend more on the habits of the person using the camera than on the presence of a closed shutter, because once stuff is inside, it will eventually get somewhere it should not be.

Which one do you think will be easier to clean?
