it can help if you use a blower inside the camera after a few lens changes to ensure there are no particles already inside the camera. these will move around when air shifts inside the chamber when zooming. (the electro-static charge on the sensor can cause them to stick).

a light blow on the mirror plus the internal element of the lens helps too. (do not blow the shutter curtain or allow the nozzle of the blower to enter the chamber).

change lenses as quickly as you can, and keep the insides of your end caps free of dust.

try not to change a lens in a situation where condensation is likely to occur, as it can cause dust to weld itself to the sensor filter requiring a wet clean to remove.

set the onboard cleaning system to activate upon start up and shut down, and during a long session,switch the camera off between photo opportunities.

think twice before wet cleaning as it can void your warranty.

dont pixel peep for dust spots, you will become obsessive!
