Dust inside EX1 lens
Jul 11, 2011

Recently installed the AX MAXX filter on my EX1 lens and wanted to make sure the lens was clean before I stuck the filter on, so used a magnifying glass. As it turns out, there are three pieces of dust inside the lens, one stuck to the inside of the outermost lens element and two (one fairly large) stuck to the outside of the lens element just below that. Couldn't dislodge them with judicous taps. Anyone else notice dust inside their EX1 lenses? I'm sure they are too small to create a problem, but I haven't run across this before with P&S cameras and don't shoot in a dusty environment.
