So frustrating.

Mounted my lens when I took the body out of the box and haven't taken the lens off once.

Fast forward a few months and my sensor is filthy.

Is this typical of this camera?

Coming from the Canon 5D4, I rarely got a spec of dust on the sensor.

Any tips on keeping the sensor clean?



My Sony Full Frame system attracts way more dust than any other system I've used. Granted, that's limited to Fuji, Nikon APSC, Olympus, and Panasonic, but it's strikingly obvious. I've gotten pretty good at cleaning my sensor. I use the Photosol Sensor swab with their Eclipse solution and have had pretty good luck. And I always carry a rocket blower.

I clean my sensor every couple months or after a heavy dose of shooting in windy conditions.
