How effective is the camera's dust reduction?
I read someplace that dust can reach the sensor even without changing lenses.

Two parts to the answer. Even if you don't change lenses, yes dust can still find a way in. Or it may be inside already. Any dust getting in has a chance of making it to the sensor sooner or later. Some other cameras may have dust seals to help further.

On the dust reduction system, like every camera with such systems, it isn't perfect. It should help a bit but you'll likely still have to use other cleaning methods at some point.

I've already replied to your other thread on the same matter.

Double posting is not encouraged by the way, since it's not fair on members who may spend a long time writing an answer, only to find that the question has already been answered in a different thread.
