"Nikon D5200 dust issues"


US
          

Hi All,

I am planning to have 2 lens for my nikon D5200. I may changes these lens frequently (daily or weekly) when shooting.
I just want to know will changing lens frequently cause more dust on sensor ?. I can take of changing lens in clean and closed environment.
But what is the chance of having dust in my sensor if I change my lens daily?.

I know the DSLR's are made to use multiple lens. That is the advantage of DSLR. At the same time I am reading like 'Changing lens allow more dust to sensor'. So how all experience people are managing the changing lens and handling dust issues ?

Thanks,

This and your questions about the "rubber gasket" on lenses suggest that you are worrying too much about this. Dust on a sensor is going to happen no matter what. Limiting your lens changes is only going to limit your photography. Change lenses when you need/want to. Clean the sensor when it needs it and don't worry.

Hi Kiran,

Getting dust on the sensor is going to happen sooner or later on every DSLR even if one never changes lenses. If you are aware of the environmental conditions and careful where, when, and how you change lenses, you can minimize the likelihood though not eliminate it.

Most of us keep a Giottos Rocket Blower in our bag since it is effective, simple and quick to use. When a Rocket Blower won't work, a wet cleaning using Sensor Swabs and Eclipse or other sensor cleaning products will be required to clean the sensor.
It is not difficult to do it yourself though it is important to use the correct products and follow the instructions to the letter.

Best Regards,
Marty
