I find them, DMR and M8, equally prone to attracting dust.
Obviously conditions vary a great deal. From changing lenses in dry  
dusty conditions to doing so in clean humid conditions.
Then it becomes a issue of what one shoots - if you notice - then try  
and remember when it may have occurred.
I may not have changed a lens on the DMR for 3 weeks. But I also  
haven't shot a expanses of solid tone stopped down - then when I do -  
wow! where did that glob come from?
