Re: Actually, I was just about to ask the OP about his video usage.

Well, I'm no sensor engineer, but pretty sure video will not cause any harm.

Unfortunately you are not right. Experienced by me, explained by Canon service. Camera used extensively in Video and LV mode. Sensor exposed, sensor hot. Any dirt on sensor gets sticky after sensor comes back to normal temperature. So sticky that sometimes it may be not cleaned even by Canon service. So, be aware when you buy a second-hand camera! Not only shuttercount counts...

And, by the way, second-hand camera lovers: would you like to hear some horror stories about how some "photographers" clean the sensor? Or "ups, it fell down; nevermind, I will sell it anyway"? I would never buy an second-hand camera or lens unless it comes from a friend...
