Hmm, that seems very unusual to me. I've had to clean only one of my sensors in the past two years, and that was because it came with a big glob o dust stuck on the sensor, right out of the box.

I wonder if the automatic dust shaker/remover in your camera is perhaps not working?


I'm with Jalywol on this one - never had any sensor dust on my M43s camera but seem to spend half my free time cleaning the sensor on my M9. In my experience mirrorless cameras (from Oly, Panny, Sony and Fuji) are all a bit better than DSLRs (or other ILCs) for dust removal. I'm pretty sure they all use variants of the Oly dust removal system (which is excellent).

EDIT: I change lenses a lot outside in windy conditions. So if there was a systemic problem I would have it.
