Why put it off exactly? Under 5 minutes with a Rocket Blower will clean 99% of that off.

Sorry to disagree but no way a blower will get that off, nor a brush your only option is the pad swipes with cleaner!

I am not sure why you would put it off? Are you just lazy or just dont care? didnt you pay good money for this equiptment? So, why not take good care of it? Just a thought? And, if you dont care, why did you bother posting the picture and asking if we thought it was dirty? If you thought it was important enough to ask our opinions then why not just clean it and be done with it. Only takes 2 minutes!

What I am not sure about is why someone would show us that picture and then refuse all advice. If you know you are not going to clean it, why tell anyone? If I quit brushing my teeth, I would also quit smiling!

Heh, now that you mention it, it kind of does.
EVERYONE:
this thread was a tongue-in-cheek post. I do need to clean my sensor, but as I always shoot wide open, I see no point at the moment. I'll probably have my 1d's before I clean the 20d's sensor.
