Hi, Would need some help regarding dust inside my 50mm lens.

I found my lens inside the glass got the dust and even though it doesn't really affect my image but I feel uneasy everytime I see dust inside. Can I unscrew and clean inside?

As heavily discussed and mentioned dozens of times before...

It's normal. Go out and shoot more.

u need a 50mm f/1.2L ... cfm no dust ;)

lame stuff aside; dust won't appear in your picture at all. I can't rmb the proper term and explanation, but no worries, the only dust you see in your picture (if any) are most likely dust on the filter infront of your sensor

cheers and shoot more ;)

Unless your lens spends it's entire time in a clean room, there's bound to be dust that will find it's way there. Don't worry so much about 1 spec of dust in your lens and go outside and shoot!

You might see it with your eyes but you will not be able to see the dust in your pictures. Go and check ;)

Very precise observation, spot on! :)
Your dry box is not dust free and Singapore is a quite dusty city. Accept it.

Dont worry about the speck of dust since it doesnt even affect the photos.
Honestly, I will only check my glass if I see a black spot on my image or when I am going to sell my lens.
Otherwise, just enjoy shooting....unless fungus, otherwise a few specks of dust will not affect the image.

If buay tahan, send for cleaning then..

Feel uneasy? Go and clean it at service center luh..

After that, keep in 10 airtight containers... Make sure that inside the container no dust...

Since you say you got the dust when shooting, since it's inside airtight container, no shoot = no dust.. :thumbsup:

If you don't mind taking the risk of accidentally causing more damage, I don't see why not...A little dust doesn't really matter.If you are still feeling uneasy, try getting service centre or CS-er fatigue to clean your lens.
