Isn't there a risk in cleaning...
In reply to WirenL, Nov 23, 2012

... that unless you adopt NASA cleanroom conditions, the sensor can become permanently scratched eg by an errant piece of grit?

I would think there is a risk, and the more often you need to clean the sensor, the more likely it will be that it will end up scratched. I wonder if there's been any instances of this happening?

BTW I mean 'sensor' in the broadest sense, whether it be a the sensor itself or any component immediately in front of it eg an IR filter.
