    Everytime I buy old manual lenses, I expect dust inside it. If no dust at all it means someone has already opened the lens to clean it, which makes me unhappy. So I don't really bother with dust, even when I buy new lens from the shop.

    dust should be more common in lenses that extend when focusing and also with zoom lenses. When the lens extends or shortens when focusing, air with dust are sucked in or pushed out.

    Dont want dust? shoot in space.

    The technician are also cover with dust.

    Even cleanroom are not totally dust free but has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.

    Unless manufacturing line from components to assemble of lens are done in a vacumn room.
    Oh Brother...you're so scientific.

    In case you're not aware...there's dust in vacuum.

    This means poor ventilation, a good environment for fungus growth.
