FWIW I work in the dry, dusty Algarve Serra,

Oooo! Portugal? I'm envious.
I was just listening to Amália Rodrigues yesterday. Pure greatness.

and on its wet, salty, sandy beaches. I change lenses tens if not hundreds of times a day, and get no problems. The D3 used to need cleaning fairly often, but no problem. The Oly kit - never once.

The only difference I see is vehicles constantly churning up the dust on game drives. Even with religious use of lens caps I found myself removing dust from lens on an annoyingly regular basis. I used B+W UV MRC filter to make cleaning easier and to protect lens.

One recommendation I saw was to bring along a pillowcase to change lenses in. I might bring one next time.
