    Just leave it if it doesn't affect your photos. Otherwise, gotta send it for cleaning. But it will still come back after cleaning. I see dust in my lenses too.

    Being dust-free is inevitable unless u go to a cleanroom. Even there, still have dust but is a lot lesser and controlled.

    I feel certain you meant "unavoidable", not "inevitable"

    You spent money getting a clean lens...
    you don't use it often...
    you get sad when dust gets into it...


    maybe you shouldn't have gotten the lens in the first place...

    'Inevitable' is correct, go check the dictionary.

    Dusts will definitely be everywhere, regardless of whether your equipment is weather-sealed, dusts will still get in.
