    How often should we expect to clean the sensor. 3,500 or so frames and several spots have appeared. Didn't seem to have this issue w/ my 5dIII. It took a long time to get spots on the sensor.

    Thoughts?
    I clean my sensor fairly often. My APS-C cameras only very rarely get dust, but my 1D X attracts it like a Swiffer. Rocket Blower, Visible Dust Arctic Butterfly and a Sensor Loupe are all I've needed (I have Sensor Stamps just in case).

    My 1DXII has been very good so far at avoiding dust. Mind you, most of the time I use it for wildlife photography and I'm shooting with a wide open aperture, which makes all but the worst dust spots unnoticeable. I agree with Neuro's protocol for cleaning, in the exact order that he lists. The sensor stamps work very well, but I'd try all the other methods first.
