i wasnt too happy when i opened the brand new box a few days ago ,zoomed out the barrel, stuck a flashlight from the top and saw about 30 tiny particles of very light dust on the inner section of the lens. It was all on the circular ring part. Its not behind the outter part of the lens, but the part behind it. Basically you have to zoom out fully to see all of them, otherwise you dont notice it. Its also pretty hard to see them without a flashlight shining through the lens.

would you go back to the store, open a new one while there to see if that one has dust ipon the inner element? If it does, ill keep the one i have now. If it doesnt ill swap it,

Told you man, total waste of money that lens is.

But the lens itself is very good, just minus the dust issues.

how common is the IS dying on them?  Is it as common as the dust?
