Sensor dust is a concern for any camera with interchangable lenses. (I even have some on a point-and-shoot where the lens has never been removed.). On my D7xx and D8xx cameras it has been a minor nuisance. I gently blow out the mirror chamber frequently when changing lenses; I have learned to clean the sensor fairly well.

I suspect that much of the dust that gets in during a lens change is contained in the mirror chamber. But what if there were no mirror? Are mirrorless lenses more likely to let dust through to the sensor?
