I used to do with sensor swabs on the original 5D, then I discovered the arctic butterfly. The sensor swabs are easy to use when you're careful, but the brush thing is even easier. Haven't used swabs in at least 4 years. Yes that electrostatic brush was expensive, but that was several years ago so my wallet has already recovered a long time ago.

Now with 5D2 and 5D3, the self-cleaning feature has improved a lot, you can run it a few times in a row, there are decent chances that the dust will go away. I haven't had to clean my sensor in a long time. Last time I did clean a sensor was a few weeks ago for a friend's D600 A few minutes with the arctic butterfly and everything was gone.

Now I guess I need to decide. Arctic butterfly seems to be the safest, easiest (and costliest ..:-) )
