DUST ALERT? How do you access this option?

I see dust alert in the menu but it is darkened out. How do you use?

I am running thru the manual but confused

You need to have an autofocus lens mounted in order to access that menu item. Do you currently have a manual lens mounted?

I think you need a non-manual lens attached for that option to become available.

Almost tied in the responses, guys. Mike edged you out by less than a minute, Marc. Wanna make it best two out of three?
