Im most likely not going to swap it out. Read online in another forum that one member went through 5 brand new copies and all 5 had dust specs on the inner element. WOW.

Is Canon putting these together in the desert or something?

I wonder about this also. These must be made by a third party manufacturer under contract with canon. Or at least it is from a different factory than the clean room built lenses.

I can image a back alley company in a third world nation with these lenses being built on the floor. All the doors and windows wide open to get some cool breezes and the floor being swept everyday for cleanliness

Thats what i was thinking too, but these lenses do say that theyre made in Japan.  How true that is, we dont know.
