Also remember that when you zoom on any lens that extends as you do so, you're pumping air, and dust, in and out of the lens and into the mirror box. If you do it quickly, you can even feel it coming out of the eyepiece, so the dust is getting in there anyway. I use primes with dust seals and a NC or UV filters in nasty environments like that to really keep crud out of the camera, and IME it's more effective than leaving a zoom on the body the entire time.
