It might seem an odd comment, but is the dust spec inside the lens?

The reason for asking was the last time I was in Africa, with no electric power where I was at night, I was using a torch at a low angle to help clean my 70-200 mk II front element. Every spec of dust on the outside of the front element was reflecting off internal surfaces - both apparent sources of dust were removed by using a rocket blower on the front element.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
