I'm sure everyone will have their own take on this, but I have found using a wet system not entirely satisfactory on its own. I tend to use a Lenspen sensor cleaner, looks like the lens cleaner but a lot smaller with a triangular head. Gets just about everything off without scratching; there is always the wet system if all else fails.

I do find though that I don't get that much muck on the sensors in the first place.

I'm a liar Howard,  :( . Not only have I seen them, I own one. But I left it in Florida at my trailer along with my Sony and all it's kit.

Ah well, the next time you are snowbirding you can give it a try ;)

Yes, another couple of months  ;D
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Seeing this made me do a sensor clean on not one but 2 of my cameras - my D700 and my newer D7000. To be honest much was only showing up on the wider apertures used for landscapes but I was tired of cloning. After being a little timid and fearing I would sneeze all over the sensor both seem clean now ready for my next wedding when I come back from South Africa. Not sure which one will be going there. Got a sensor pen but scared of scouring the sensor with it. Use it on my lenses instead now after a blow / dust. Wet system for me.
