I found this interesting, yet I didn't hear of any widespread problems reported with this. When you read it, it does make sense? Would this be a widespread problem - I think not, 'cause Nikon would have had a recall? And if it were true, I'd be afraid to check because of the length of time I'd have to keep the camera body open for inspection, thereby allowing all kinds of dust to get into my camera.
So far I've managed to avoid the CCD dust pitfall by being exceptionally careful when I put on a new lens.
Any comments or observations about the problem listed on the highlighted thread?
