Just received my Olympus 25mm f1.8, with a free speck of dust inside
6 months ago

Just recieved the lens. It feel solid in the hand and goes quite well with my GM1. I  took a few snaps and the photos are sharp and vibrant (just an impression, as I don't tend to pixel-peep ).

All was as expected and I was happy, but then I noticed a spect of dust in the middle of the lens, between the elements. I'm used to seeing dust in old lenses and I don't have problem with that, but this is a shining brand-new lens and the spec of dust looks very conspicuous. Should I bear it and try to ignore it or should I return it for an exchange? It's bought via the internet and if I want to exchange, I'll have to send it back.

What would you do?
