Re: So here's a potentially stupid question...

Think about it. When the camera is turned off and the lens has been removed the electronic viewfinders won't show anything anyway so why leave the sensor exposed in that case?

That would be my thinking too - why not add that simple yet effective level of protection when the lens is off and there's the greatest risk of exposure to dust etc. And I would expect that any dust on the shutter is more likely to get shaken off by the much greater movement of the shutter curtains than even the very effective SSWF filter.

And sensor cleaning could be done (though apparently it SHOULDN'T be done anyway) the way it's been done with the SLRs. Bulb setting.
