Mine had some spots so big you could see them on the LCD. I read somewhere a lot of video use exacerbates the oil issue - something to do with the extra heat. When mine got bad I had done a lot of messing about with video and one fashion shoot.

I never had to clean my D700 in 4 years of use on beaches and on location.


Thus, the added "beauty" of the D3/D700....No Video

I've had enough dust twice to run the full clean cycle. That took care of it both times. Otherwise, 5 months and no sensor swab or Eclipse needed yet... I change lenses as needed with no special precautions and shoot lots of landscapes at small apertures.

I do have a speck of dust in the viewfinder, but nothing worth the bother to remove.

ckcarr: focussing screen dust - UPDATE

To whom it may interest, just received replacement focusing screens from Nikon (Nikon Canada it is) and a quick swap accompany by a blast of Zerostat (camera's battery removed) and Giottos blower restored the viewfinder vision to like new condition.

D800E No spots or cleaning needed yet on mine, I constantly change lenses in the field, even in bad weather (wind, snow,rain).

D300. LOTS of cleaning. D700, no cleaning whatsoever and no spots. It's not even mind, a work camera so I treat it like that. Change lenses all the time.

different strokes for....D300 almost 5 y/o, cleaned once wet. D700 seems to need cleaning once a quarter but I have twice as many clicks on the 300.ymmv.
