The lens is only about a month old, and i'm always really careful with my stuff... how is there a floating dust particle in my lens, and how do i get it out..

its definitely not on either side of the lens.. i checked...

It happens, its not an air tight design. It won't hurt anything.

A little dust in your lens won't effect the image quality.

Just leave it. You might make matters worse if you attempt anything.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I had a long piece of dust in mine. I just got a rocket blower and blew it from the mount side as its not sealed, the air blew it away fron inside the lens. Result!

If you afraid to do that just take it back and exchange it.

Are you serious? You would exchange a lens because you got a piece of dust inside it? Drug up much?

Dust in side a lens is like 100 grit sand paper. As the lens is moved around the dust grinds away at the glass, slowly taking away I.Q. until the lens is just trash! Trash I tell you!

Cheers,

David
