I've only been playing with the new D7000 for some three weeks now, and that's about as many times as I've switched lenses, always at home, body pointing down, nice and easy.

Alas, yesterday I took some pictures including clear sky and small apertures, and I've already got sensor dust. No doubt about it, I did the test of shooting a long exposure against a white wall, infinity focus, moving the camera, f32. One large speck, several small ones. All go unnoticed in the large aperture pictures.

Geez, does it pay to be this carefull? Should I get a blower? I'm really not brave enough to start doing wet/dry pads so soon with a new camera.

Also, and this puzzles me, when I command a sensor clean, the display shows the in progress message. However, I've also got it configured for clean at start-up and shutdown, and on these occasions no message comes up, unlike with my old D3000. Is this normal?

Thanks for any help.

Best regards from Portugal.

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.
