ONce you've cleaned it wet once the fear is gone.

Good result for you

I would NEVER use anything but the Giottos blower but I have had many good results with it thus far.  It is the only one I know of that has a one-way air flow and supposedly filters the air coming in the rear of the bulb.

It's MUCH easier and quicker than doing a contact cleaning when just a couple dust spots are present.  However I think I will keep the nozzle further back out of the mirror box.  

You are correct.  I was always intimidated by touching the AA filter but... no longer.

Side note:  Even with the new ultrasonic cleaning method the K-5 seems no stranger to dust.  Whatever Olympus did with their cleaning system... it was the best I have seen yet.  I simply never wrestled with dust spots on my Olympus 4/3 bodies.
