Subject: [Leica] Dust...

Hello all,
I am planning to acquire an M6-0.85x soon.  I am a long time SLR user
and the dust in the viewfinder is always something that infuriates me.
This is why I always buy cameras with removable (interchangeable)
viewfinders...I can then spend hours (?!!?) with the compressed air
bottle cleaning the specs of dust.

Tell me, how does this compare to an M6.  Does dust find its way into
the viewfinder housing?  If so, how do you clean it?  At least I would
not have to remove any dust particles on any mirror!! That's already a
Thank you for your response,
