How can I know in practice how well an anti-dust system performs? (without buying a dslr)
For example,Gordon in the K10D review said the on board system in not as effective as others. (refering maybe to the better option on the Olympus dslr-s)
Let's say...by comparison of the Xsi and the K10D,which has a better anti-dust feature? (it's not such an important detail for me,just that I want to know...I can't find any information of this kind)

I dont know.. I have my K10d since last friday so I dont know how efficient it is yet.. the only thing that gets dusty are my lenses.. I have to clean them a lot.. especially with all the salt here near the coast

Hi Razvan, as I say in my reviews, there's no scientific way of measuring absolute dust reduction performance - all we can do is gather anecdotal evidence to build up a picture of how well it works.
