I'm happy to do this myself but the best price I can find for 12 SensorSwabs + fluid is 66 . I imagine I could get it cleaned for 30 ish.

However I also have an E-M5mk1 which may need cleaning at some stage. The question is how often would I need to clean these? Since I got my first E-M5 6 years ago I've noticed one pollen spot on the Mk1 and now this on the Mk2. I can reduce this frequency even more by using the 2 bodies - it reduces lens swapping by a huge amount.

I'll check the local stores and see what they charge then decide.
12 swabs will, in theory, give you 12 cleans, so about a 5 per clean. However, 66 is a bit crazy.

Try these people - they are cheaper and their site also has a lot of good advice:

E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
