I very efficiently sucked the dust out just with my mouth, strongly breathing in (having a cloth over the lens opening to catch the dust). It is important to repeat that some times with different zoom lengths.

I suppose that all "depends" -- I really vacuumed the holy heck out of my 18-200mm before the two big, offending chunks of dust finally broke loose. Indeed, extending and retracting the lens while vacuuming is also advisable. But anything short of a powerful vacuum wouldn't have taken care of my situation.
