"D300 and LCD dust is simply a fact of life!"

The body I talk about in the above post has been great in terms of durability. I have, however, found that dust behind the LCD glass is simply something I'll have to live with.

I sent this camera in for a cleaning and pixel map just before my warranty was up.

It came back with all the pixels looking good, and with an extremely clean, dust-free LCD!

After about 3 weeks of use, I now have dust behind the LCD glass again. I'm just going to live with it. I do hope that in future models (Was it addressed in the D300s?) they will find a way to prevent this.

Canon uses an LCD and glass sandwich, in which there is no gap for dust to collect. Maybe Nikon needs to redesign their LCD. They look good as far as colors and brightness, but they are still hard to see in bright sunlight and there will be dust behind the LCD eventually on everyone's body.

I found today that when blowing dust off with my breath from around the buttons on the back of the camera, the dust behind the LCD moved around just a bit. It must be a combination of changing lenses, zooming lenses that change length and dust and air getting in places on the body that aren't completely sealed.

Ho hum! Another excuse to upgrade to a D400 or D400s when that time comes!

I've also read that this is an issue with D700 bodies. How about the D3?
