I had the same problem with my Tamron 17-50
I used my blower (it was behind the front element and I could not directly point at it ) I tried different directions and after 5 minutes I moved it and it never showed up again

It wiil definitely bug you all the time even though it is not affecting your images, If you dont worry about the warranty, you can open the front elements if you have the confidence in doing it. I just recently cleaned the inside of my 24 105 lens and it was easy. but of course, yours is preety way expensive than my L lens. Just sharing my thought okay, not telling you should it. ;)

I think there is a bit of tape etc that he needs to worry about just because of the weather sealing. I do not recommend it. Really not. Too much money at risk.

no good has ever come from looking at the inside of lenses...

Yup! Just like looking at the mirror of a reflecting telescope...

Assuming you have looked closely and it is not on the front element, nor rear element but inside - try holding your vacuum cleaner next to the lens as you zoom and focus and shake it.

DreDaze. Yes, I suggest not even looking inside. I sold a lens to someone in China who complained that when he shined a flashlight inside the lens he could see something. I suggested that uisng that for a test would reveal not even brand new lenses are perfect.

Yeah, seriously. I don't understand why people get worked up over this stuff. Every professional I know that actually makes money by selling amazing images don't give a care about dust or other crap in their lenses. It's funny when other people are freaking out because they found something but can't even identify what effect it has on the images.

Now lens flare and ghosting in your images... That's something to worry about.

It's called OCD. You know, that problem when you can't help but obsess over something even though you know in your head it doesn't really matter. Even some professionals have it.

I make sure I never look further than the front element - what I don't know about inside dust will not hurt me.
