"I'll take the cleaning system,"
I have read at other times where you didn't feel this system was "all
that" Thom. After using it on the D700, have you changed your
position some?

Yes, I've changed my position after analyzing my data. I clean less often now, somewhere around half as much. Given that manual cleanings are not without risk and take time, I've changed my position.

Do you feel now that "it does" remove the tougher
specs and lessens swab cleaning?

"Tougher specs" no. The in-camera systems seem very good at keeping "dust" and other physical particles like hairs off the sensor. They do not deal with humidity issues, pollens, oil thrown by the shutter, and a host of other problems, all of which require a wet cleaning. Essentially, the in-camera systems have minimized my having to do blowing (Rocket Bulb) and dry brush (Arctic Butterfly) cleanings.
