Re: More or less my story too.

Those gaps sound potentially menacing, but only Nikon knows, if they know. .... As I have been reading about this dust / oil spot issue, something else occurred to me - chassis flex. I'm not saying this is in anyway real, but a musing. The front plate is polycarbonate. If that front plate is a structural piece of the camera and if the forces of the shutter and mirror are causing some kind of flex in side of the camera, perhaps that may be causing some unintended friction that is generating the dust. BUT, this is noting more than pure speculation. This could be nothing more than hogwash.
