Hair inside new lens, is this acceptable?

First post and I should start by thanking everyone on this forum - I've been lurking here for years and learnt a lot from you all.

Now, after months if not years of deliberation I recently bought an Oly 75mm. I did some tests today and I am happy with the image quality so far, BUT I was surprised to see a hair inside the lens (in the middle below - sorry if photo is not clear, it was hand held with a desk lamp). As far as I can tell, this is not impacting the images, but I worry it might move and in future become a problem, or it could affect any future resale value.

I will probably send it back for a new one but I thought I would check first if I am over-reacting - would you consider this acceptable? Having saved for some time to buy this lens I felt disappointed to see such a blemish in it. I believe that a bit of dust is ok, but a HAIR?...

Thanks for your thoughts.
