There is a thing called "dust-shield," http://www.dust-aid.com/08dustshield.html , that tries to keep dust (from outside) off the sensor. It seems to have never gotten beyond the Canon 5D version. I think this sort of thing would make a lot of sense for mirrorless cameras.

Interestingly, the non-moving mirror on the Sony SLT cameras essentially provides this functionality as a side effect. The main difference is that the SLT mirror is not cheap to replace.

I can see why that "Dust Shield" didn't get far! So I'm shooting images with my $3000 lens thru a cheap piece of plastic.... I don't thing so!!
