I agree that there is no sense in buying lenses with different capabilities and not changing them. Cleaning the body and sensor is something that I do on a frequent basis anyway. A lot of people are afraid to do it until they see how easy it is.

As for the vacuum method possibly introducing more dust the chances are that there will not be as much dust coming in because of the idea of negative pressure. Because more air is being pulled out of the cavity that can make it back into the cavity due to the seal of the body of the camera there is little chance that much dust will make it to the sensor. I wouldn't do it in a dusty environment and I would go as far away from the vacuum body as the hose would allow to prevent being near dust from the exhaust.
