Hi Thomas,

Review the Reviewer!

No!

No!

No!

>* Does dust which enters camera bodies due to operation of

Yes! The lenses are not air tight either. In fact I suspect that most if not all of the air entering or leaving the system will enter through the lens and not the camera body.

>* Is professional cleaning of bodies and zooms to remove dust

No!

You are over thinking this. Just use common sense. You are more likely to get dust in the camera if you change lenses is a dusty environment. With the exception of underwater cameras, No camera or lens is air tight. The D4 has the best dust sealing in the Nikon line of DSLR's.
Have you had a problem with your D300?

>avoid using a pumper type lens in such an environment?

Use the lens or lenses that works best for your needs.
Cleaning the sensor is not that difficult.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
