Re: You just moved the target, didn't prevent dust

Thanks, I will take you answer as one of the few here that 'get' the idea I was describing.

Sure, I am not saying that any current DSLR would be able to fit an extra piece of glass in the hole, it would require something to be engineered into a new model to allow it to fit/work with all the other systems around it.. but it's just an idea.

If it was there it would (help) prevent dust getting into the mechanisms when changing lenses, it would be easy to clean if dust got on it (when changing lenses) and yes, it may have some detrimental effects on the path of light coming into the camera at that point. To help with that perhaps the mirror and sensor would not need as much surface protection as these would then be within a sealed unit...
