I don't know if you remember, but I'm the one you sold your 35-70mm f/2.8 AF-D to. I was wondering if you use the cable release method yourself. In particular, I was wondering if static from the CCD being on makes has been a factor in how clean you were able to get your CCD using the cable release method.
Since I first put the lens on that you sold me, I haven't taken it off, however, I do have some dust still and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to remove it. It isn't too hard to clone the dust out (it takes all of 5 minutes).
Thanks! I love the lens but I only wish the D100 was full frame so I could get that 35mm perspective I've grown to like.
