I recently purchased a D1X and within a week I had the CCD covered in dust
I have already had it cleaned twice by Nikon in Torrance ( by the way they are very good about it they cleaned it while I waited and they did not charge me a penny). They told me it was my lenses I was using 28-80 f/3.5-5.6D- I can understand why dust could get in though that, and I also have a 70-300 f/4-5.6 D a little better lens but still not so hot when it comes to dust control.
So I am wondering if anyone could tell me of a good semi dust proof zoom lens I could get.
I am getting crazy not being able to use my new camera, It is so far the best camera I have ever used but also the worst because of the dust issue- sometimes I kinda feel like I should go back to shooting slide film, it's easier to clean the dust off.

Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciatedĀ
