Hi HarryT
What on earth are you talking about here ?
Never read/heard about that before. So tell me/us more about it ;-D
Just checked my K3 with a VERY strong magnifying glass and saw nothing like "black dusting". The surface is not smooth, but..

And to other posters, I DO wipe it regularly with a silk cloth I use for my spectacles, and since 2010 I've no problems what so ever with that.
Using cleaning fluids is a different matter. NEVER spray on the screen directly.
ALL forms of wiping should done with a "delicate touch" !
I have NO idea just HOW fragile the screen is.

Lastly: I concur doctors. Let's have some pictures, we're all guessing here.
Cheers,
