Return it!

Hey there!

I had a similar experience ...

What I thought was a speck of dust turned out to be a crack inside the lens.

I noticed this only between 70-80mm when the lenses inside were 'close together'. On zoom past 80mm, the 'crack' was less obvious.

I would return it for a BRAND NEW lens.

Hope this helps.
