Re: I vacuumed the dust out of my SEL 18-200mm lens.

Out of curiosity, how often do you shoot at high enough aperture to notice the dust? I would think at f22 you'd have more issues with softness from diffraction than the dust spots.

I understand the approach, though, and very clever. I've taken apart several lenses to clean dust out, even if some of them were more a nuisance than an actual problem that could be seen in pictures.
