Go for it, but I don't find dust that much of a problem. When I notice it in an image, I clean my sensor..
It just doesn't seem to be worth much money, effort and stress to me..

Seriously, dust is not that big a problem. Your heppa filter box would only complicate the sensor cleaning. And when you are done, you put on that zoom lens which sucks air in and out every time you zoom the lens. Seems like serious overkill to me..

Although a HEPA filter is good for what we breathe, with DSLRs we are concerned with what we see. A relatively clean area including the surrounding air is OK for sensor cleaning..
I pick a clean work space, minimal air flow (AC/heating off), no apartment/house cleaning that stirs up dust, and just do it..

I agree with most of your other posts. I have cleaned my sensor for dust maybe 3 times in 2 years, and I shoot and change lenses fairly often. I've also had cameras attached to telescopes via an adapter, which would make the dust-paranoid cringe I think..
Each time I cleaned it, I did the unspeakable: I took a can of compressed air, blew a couple shots to clear the tube out, and blew out the camera from a shor distance. Each time it worked fine..

I'd rather stick with my E-1 or buy the E-3 in the long run. Had the E-1 for more than 2.5 years, changed lenses a lot, not a single dust mark in my shots. The SSWF works.pbase Supporter..

I just plunk it down on my desk and do the cleaning. No problems, a grand total of maybe 15-20 minutes a year. Why add complexity to reduce that?.

Let me just warn everyone else NOT to use canned air on your sensor..
I've sent several cameras in for sensor replacement (not mine, but for customers) who, even after being warned, used canned air on their sensor instead of cleaning their sensor the correct way, and ended up with a bill that was half the price of a new body..
Don't do it!.
That being said, I have an Oly DSLR and don't have a dust-bunny problem..
