    Default Cleaning lenses

    Recently found that my lens, seem to be very dusty, between the lens and my UV filter.

    Is that normal ???

    The dust came up on the photo as small pixel sized dots.

    Cleaning it with a small lens brush seem to get rid of it. just wondering how the dust got in there.

    There is a black particle on the filter glass that cannot be remove, is time to replace it? ... had these lenes for only a couple of months.

    Dust happens.

    If the particle doesn't affect your photos, you can probably ignore it?

    hi pentium!
    The black particle could be paint falling off from the lens edges or filters. I had a couple of specks on mine too.. n realised it was wear n tear from screwin on n off filters. i removed it by using a blower to puff it off...

    Dust on your lenses/filters should never appear in the photos. If you have them, check for CCD dust.
