I saw some lens being sold at Ebay and was wondering how dust got into them? Are some not sealed properly? I just bought myself D70s and a bit concern with dust getting into it. :eek:

Thanks

There is no escaping dust. It will always be in your lens and camera body. Live with it.

This one cannot prevent one?? Dust on sensor can clean but on lens how? Will it affect the image captured? :think:

puppet: a spec of dust in the pic below

how come dust can get into lens? cos unless your in those clean rooms, there's bound to be some dust floating in the air somewhere.. IIRC, when your using a lens, zooming, focusing etc, there would be some movements of air into the lens? correct me if I'm wrong..

Some dust in the lens will not affect quality of image. Even brand new lens have some dust in them. Dun worry too much and start shooting. :thumbsup:
Yes, have seen brand new lens with dust inside. Hard to avoid if you're living on earth....:bsmilie: Most won't affect your images, unless they're BIG specks!

When your focusing ring turns or your zoom ring turns, your camera suck in air which may contain microscopic particles. Other than that, it may be a factory defect
