Some of the glass-to-body junctions on the Ms aren't completely sealed, and overenthusiastic application of Dust-Off or the like can blow dust INTO the camera, where it hangs there on the wrong side of a glass surface and sticks its little dusty tongue out at you. And not just dust -- I had a little haze of dust-blower-can mist (something intrinsic to some of the formulations, which you just wipe off if it's on an accessible surface) collect at the edge of a front viewfinder window. Eventually the camera had to go to Sherry Krauter to fix something else, and she went in there and cleaned up the detritus of my overcleaning. She laughed at me.
