Which cameras have worst dust cleaning system? Frankly when I switched to full frame with cleaning system I thought my problems would be over but I did not see much improvement. So here is my vote for Canon :-)

I've been shooting a Nikon D800 for a couple of years now and have never had to clean the sensor....I'd say Nikon's 'dust cleaning system' works pretty well.

Totally agree, 5D2 is a total dust magnet, and the auto cleaning system does nothing.

My vote goes to Canon as well but found "genius" way to avoid dust as much as possible. Bought three Canon bodies each with prime, zoom an tele lens so I don't switch lenses often . The fourth Nikon body seems to me dust proof but again I prefer Canon over Nikon.
 
By the way, recently bought Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM Lens and have to switch the lens to test but have to say for less than 200$ is one of the "must have" with unbelievable sharpness. Amazing!

The newer Pentax system is amazing.  My old k-x always had dust but my k-5 has over 35,000 actuations and never been cleaned, k-5IIs is over 10,000 and no dust.  And I change lenses a lot.

Just went over a batch of 48 for Alamy looking for dust spots and found: zero.

None of my Nikons had and have problems with dust.
(I hope it will continue with the new one :) )

Same here. I'm still on the K5 but it's fairly dust free. Haven't needed to wet clean it yet at well over 10,000. Have blown it out a few times though.

Got it April, 2012.  So, 1 yr and 9 months ago.  Sorry, I was off by 3 months.   ;)

I have a nikon d 600 and it is full of snot and dust.
But the sensor outclasses anything, so ill stick to it.
Maybe clean it. It needs done.

The D600 is/was notorious for oil (from the aperture blades?) and dust, particularly the bodies in the initial release; don't know if that is still an issue.

Supposed to be solved in the D610.
