if you are bothered by the dead ant, go bury the lens. let the dead ant rest in peace.

otherwise, just bring it to the service center, and make a plea to them, but do it without being nasty or violent. i'm sure they are people too like you and i.

cheers!

If the lens is covered under warranty, better bring it back to CSC for servicing. Never try to dismantle the lenses no matter how easy it is if it was under warranty or risk having that warranty voided.

Just curious though... where did TS keep his/her lens? How come an ant can crawl in and die inside? Better be on a lookup... maybe sooner or later an entire nest of ants are going to be inside :D

I'm not sure, but perhaps improper re-installation could affect lens performance.

TS can try to PM fatigue here?
Thanks Edutilos :)

front element shd be able to be removed quite easily...
True for some lens, but for this lens, dismantling is from back to front

Agree, better send it to CSC if under warranty.

I think get it to CSC to blow it out is better. they should clean it since it is still under warranty.
