    Default Question regarding Dust in lens

    Hi,

    May i know if there's any good place to clean the dust in the lens between the glasses where it could not be reached without removing the lens apart?

    And how much would it cost around?

    Lens type is, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II (No Warranty)

    Thank you all so much !

    If it doesn't show up in your shots, don't bother. Dust is normal.

    if it bother u so much, then go to the service centre to get it clean..

    ultimately, we should look for photo opportunities and shoot happily.. not look out for minor dust particles and be stress..

    Yes, you can send the lens to the service centre for cleaning, or contact bro fatigue.

    There is no "if" unless the dust has already formed a colony, a government and an army threatening you with attacks by dust mites. Chanes are much higher that you have dust on your sensor that shows up in images.

    Agreed. So far dust in lens are not threatening, and it's usually those found on the sensors that are much more annoying....

    Pls don't blow into the sensor. You will introduce even more dust.

    Glass in front of the sensor, at the back. So it's the last (rear) element of the lens, facing the sensor when mounted? Just unmount the lens, and use a lens pen or the like to gently clean off the dust.

    Don't worry about dust if it's only a little.
    Sometime, a little fungus don't even affect photos.
