If memory serves, the charge on the charge coupled device (CCD) imager on the older cameras was known to "attract" dust.

Also, the material used for the very outside surface of the imager/bayer filter was not particularly adept at shedding dust either.

So the charge attraction, choice of surface material and lack of ultrasonic cleaning function led to significantly more issues with dust in the earlier cameras.
