    So did Canon's static sensor thing to repel dust, make it 4000% worse and actually attracted dust?

    The Canon one is crazy

    i've always had a feeling that the anti-dust feature wasn't as effective as it was made out to be.

    When I realized that all it takes to clean the sensor is popping up your mirror and blowing some compressed air on it, it seemed to me like it was just another thing to have break. I think the test is flawed, though, as it's designed to shake the sensor every time you turn on the camera, which is more preventative than something designed to remove extreme amounts of dust all at once.

    I'm so used to that viewfinder now that when I pick up my A75 I don't even use the screen anymore. :rofl:
