Battle of DSLR sensor dust busters

Chasseur d'Images have conducted what must have been the first side-by-side laboratory testing of the sensor dust busters offered by Canon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony. Thought this might be of interest to prospective DSLR buyers. Their webpage at http://www2.photim.com/info/index.php says:

"la plupart des systèmes antipoussière sont totalement inefficaces! Zéro pointé pour l'EOS 400D, guère mieux pour le Pentax et le Sony. Seul Olympus s'en sort bien! Il faut le voir pour le croire, c'est un test que personne n'a jamais osé faire"

Which, after a rough translation by babelfish.altavista.com can be summarised as "the majority of the antidust systems are completely ineffective! Zero point for the EOS 400D, hardly better for Pentax and Sony. Only Olympus fared well! It has to be seen to be believed, it is a test that nobody ever dared to make". For those that can read French better than I do, the whole article can be found in the March 2007 print issue.
