What size Giottos lens blower for M9?

Despite having the sensor replaced recently, looks like there is some dust on it in a recent photo I took at small aperture with blue skies.

Did a little research and it seems like the safest DIY fix is getting a Giottos Lens blower and putting the camera in cleaning mode or B (some debate here) and blowing it out.

Do I want the medium or large for general use? I don't really see traveling with it as I'm not that anal, so thinking the large?

Rocket Blower is a must! The larger the stronger and longer air flow you will get. Larger will have longer nose as well and I'm finding it helpful to keep my hand with more distance from camera.

I agree with Ko: The larger the better/more effective. I always have one of these around.

Thanks. Large it is. Hopefully it will help as I don't have the stomach for wet cleaning.

I have to do wet cleaning for new M-E (shutter lubricant). It is not difficult with appropriate cleaning tabs and appropriate liquid. Liquid makes huge difference. With wrong one it leaves strikes, appropriate one will do it with single swipe. Almost
