Happy New Year to every one.
Just a thought, when and i'm sure it will happen the SLT Mirror gets dust on it and perhaps even atmospheric haze. Whats the course of action. Apparently you must not touch the mirror surfaces.
I remember some one talking about replacing the mirror and there was a Video showing how to it, apparently its not that difficult, but how much would a relacement mirror cost.

Blow it off with a dry blower or canned air (from a distance), preferably holding the camera lens mount down so stuff falls out, rather than into the body.
They said not to touch digital sensors in the beginning, but now you can clean them with proprietary kits, so very careful cleaning is possible with the right equipment. If it gets really bad, you can have it cleaned and even re-silvered for a price.
One of the disadvantages of permanent mirrors.
I guess a lot is down to how often I change lenses and the enviroment I do it in.
It would be good to find out the costs of a pro clean and/or mirror replacement.
