One bad thing that has happened with this camera (which was completely my fault) was that I have managed to get some sensor dust. This is likely because I have been carrying the camera around in my pocket with no case. I took the camera apart and cleaned most of the dust off but there is some inside the lens that I haven’t managed to get to so there are some dust spots that show up when I stop down a lot.

I don't know that this is your FAULT because I think the carrying the camera around in your pocket without a case is how Canon expects people to use the camera. They don't include a dust case with it.

I think that sucking up dust is the achilles heal of all cameras with expanding and contracting lenses. Air needs to be sucked in when the lens expands, and some dust may get inside.

I am impressed that you opened the camera and cleaned it yourself.
