I sure was. Didn't help. My former D800 didn't have any dust/oil issues.

But my former D600, of course did, and my former Z6. And yes I found oil or some form of liquid landing on my Z6 sensor.

I have a Nikon Z6 with about 6000 clicks on it so far. Purchased refurbished with the superb 24-70mm f4 lens. No dust issues to date. Change lenses not so often but the FTZ adapter does get used with it and with my Z50, which has also not had dust issues despite numerous lens changes on it.

Had worse dust issues with my Nikon Df than the Z6 by far.

It's honestly interesting. I wish I could better explain it, but it wasn't that way the first few weeks I owned the Z6. It developed over time. And it was worse than my former D600 to be honest. I had to wet clean after each photo shoot. Likely something wrong with my particular Z6.
