I thought I would test for sensor dust when out the other day so I shot some at f/22 and sure enough we have lots of sensor dust on my D7K. A few are visible in the attached picture and many more appear when viewed at 1:1 The spots are barely visible at f/11 and as expected, completely disappear when shot at f/8 or <.

My D90 has been in service longer and not a speck of sensor dust shows up.

Is there something special in the D7000's design that would cause it to be a dust magnet? Just curious to know if others have seen this more often than with other Nikon cameras.
