Hi guys,

i just bought the Nikkor 35mm F1.8 last friday 12-Mar-10 and while i was cleaning my lens today, i found out that there is like a STRAND or FIBRE/DUST within the lens! Should i go down to the shop and request for a 1 to 1 exchange or should i go down to nikon service center to claim the warranty?

Sorry for the trouble guys, i'm new here!

Try getting it changed at the shop first.

if you can't live with dust trap inside your lens, then the best way will be only use your lens inside a clean room, or lock inside your dry cabinet & don't use it at all.Only Take out every night to clean & look at it will do.:bsmilie:

FYI, warranty don't cover dust cleaning. You are lucky that the shop still entertain you for this round. What will you do if after another week you discover there are dust trap in your lens again? Spend $80 for cleaning? :bsmilie:

how long is the strand? do u have picture of the strand?

it's normal to have a few specks of dust in the lens especially over time.

it will not affect the quality of your picture if that is what you are worried about.

Hi guys, the shop guy told me that the strand of thing wasn't dust, i know lens are not dust proof. He said it was more like remnants when cutting the lens and while manufacturing the lens.
