If you need to show a BIG picture, link it instead. With proper post processing techniques, small pictures can be sharp also. (See jed's posts)

Have fun with your new toy! :)

sorry for the huge pic......just to add, the 50mm/f1.8 have a few BIG pieces of dust inside....so i purposely make this big and see if anyone can spot the dust in the pic....

sorry everyone...won't post big pic again...

for the 3rd shot, that was the moon, not the dust....the 3rd pic is suppsoe to check if the dust in the lens is visible on the photo or not...i dunno if i did it correctly??

for the 1st and 2nd pic, i forgot where i focus already....i use evaluative metering for both...so i tot both will get similar results....

Sigh. Dust in a lens doesn't show up as dust on the picture.

hee hee... the first two looks a little overexposed, the second one seems better tho. And the two are not framed exactly the same way, so you'll get different meter readings... use a tripod if you want to compare. =) Now need big big tripiod liao... D30+lens (even 50mm) can get heavy....

That of cos i know...how should a dust look like in the picture then? is that visible in the pictures above?

Anyway, the particle inside is quite big, abt 5mm in legth, green in colour, look like some cloth fibre, rather thick too...it is near the middle of the lens somemore

Look like many 50mm/f1.8 MKII have this dust problem....

I don't see any particle on your picture, are you sure the dust isn't on the viewfinder?

when i take out the 50mm/f1.8 and look thru the lens against a light source, those particles will be clearly seen

I see... anyway, I don't see it in your pics at all so I don't think it's a big problem. Getting the dust cleaned out of my lens at the Canon service centre last time cost 80 bucks! If it's not affecting your photos, I don't think it's worth it.
