Re: Sony A7R IV Sensor Dust Magnet?

I don't know A7r IV as have not owned but guess should be similar to all other Sony A7/A7r-series.

I agreed Sony bodies are not good in dust-resistance that easily collected on sensors after every lens swapping. That bothers me. I even now carrying the rocket blower in my pocket that I actually blow the sensor everytime when I swapping lenses. And I cleaned sensors after each shooting task with all the first 4 steps as indicated in the link below.

Really hope future Sony bodies implement a sensor protection feature, similar to and better than Canon did in EOS-R that closes shutter (sensor door) everytime when turning off the camera.
