    Does my camera need a service?

    I'm running currently a Nikon D80 that has just recently passed 21,000 photos.
    I bought it new when it was current, and since then I have only had the sensor cleaned once.

    This wasn't a service, just a clean.
    I'm now at the point where if I shoot at anything smaller than F11 dirt shows up on my frame. Shooting at something like F18 - F22 shows copious amounts of dirt.
    Other than that it's performance over the last few years has been amazing.
    I wish to continue this awesome performance. Should I send it in for a clean and service?
    Nikon D80, 8mm F3.5, 18-55mm, 50mm F1.8, 70-300mm, SB-600

    camera itself doesnt need a service as it is still very young at only 21k actuations according to you

    all you need is a sensor clean which should be anywhere from $50 to $100 bucks depending where you go, APSC sensors are a bit cheaper to clean than FF ones.
