This sensor cleaning business has me confused. I remember reading somewhere 
that if one tried the usual sensor cleaning methods on a camera with IBIS, that 
feature would be destroyed. I think it was Oly that put out that info, but they 
have had a bad habit of trying to funnel owner maintenance to their own 
subcontractors. 


And but the way, if we build a wall between us and Mexico won't that mean they 
will have to have a US based service center?

I've only had the one problem so far. I have as yet used it almost exclusively 
at home and in the yard, although there 
have been lots of lens changes.

I have a Rocket Blower. Fortunately, it's is sorta decorative (Oyster Catcher 
color scheme), as it's useless for the 
purpose of cleaning sensors. No better than the ear syringe I had tried at 
first. It has neither the tight focus nor the 
velocity needed to do this job. 

It's rather like blowing with my mouth at fallen leaves, or asking them to go 
away. You need a powered leaf blower 
(Dust-Off-ish) and/or rake (SensorPen).

I haven't had that problem. If the pen pushes stuff into the corner, the corner 
of the pen can push/flip the debris up 
and out. Then dab or blow it out of the chamber. It's a matter of decent manual 
dexterity, I suppose.

The Oly dust removal is magic! I think I've removed something from a Panny 
sensor once? They seem amazingly dust free, 
compared to the 300D, 5D, 60D and A7. 

My practice of minimal lens changes, esp. in the field, may be a factor.
