Thread: Dust in Lens

  1. #1

    Default Dust in Lens

    My EF 28-123mm IS USM lens got some speck of dusts in it. How much will it cost to have the lens cleaned and can someone recommend a good and reliable shop?

    Thanks in advance.

    Wah, shake also can arh? Then when you use again later won't it fall back onto the glass? I recommend if its there and it irritates you/your pics, get rid of it - go straight to Canon.

    Try shooting at some tighter apertures, if the dust doesn't show up in the image then don't worry about it. A bit of dust is quite normal.

    As said if not visible in yr images then leave it. If u're very particular abt having dusts then send it back to Canon for cleaning.

    By the way it's 28-135mm.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    Thanks Snoweagle, noticed that I typed 123mm instead of 135mm!!


    Just took this off Changi Beach.

    1) I realized there is a red dot that appears in all my photos always at the same position. It is somewhere at top of the photo. Is this from the lens or from my camera's sensor?

    2) Can you guys help me see if all the 'lens flare' look-alike stuff in this photo are due to my lens?

    Kam sia again....

    1) i think ur cam sensor gt hotpixel
    2) use a hood to reduce possibility of lens flare

    3) think you can remove your UV filter for the night shots to reduce flare too
