"YES DUST S/N 8003XXX"

Has had serious dust issues from pretty much day one. Quite shocked actually. Have a D7000 with 60 000+ actuations and has never had more than a speck or two from field lens changes. I live in outback Australia and is impractical to send back to Nikon, however, the upside seems to be be that it only "dust" or other non-oil based substance. Rocket blower removes all visible specks at 100%. Prior to this realisation, I had several shoots where the photos were all but unuseable due to large expanses of sky. I now blow out the sensor indoors before EVERY shoot. Pain in the bum, but is a manageable work around ( at least until the mount wears out!) Have approximately 5 000 actuations now and the problem does seem to be diminishing. Perhaps there is credence to the theory of shutter material grinding away??
