Do I need to get this lens cleaned?
7 months ago

Hello, people who are smarter/more experienced than me! Noticed there are a few pieces of dirt inside my workhorse 70-200 VR2, attached an image below as seen from the rear element with the aperture slider all the way open.

When I move the lens from side to side, it looks like it's on an internal element, so I can't get to it. Does this matter?

I know dust is no big deal but these look kinda big, then again maybe they lie outside the light path? If I do need to get it cleaned, this is the off season for me (weddings) so now is the time to do it!

Thanks in advance smart people!
