Dust in lens question
1

I'm looking at an old Nikon lens that is described as excellent, with the only nit being "small bit of dust" in the lens.  Is this a problem, does it affect images?  I read somewhere that sometimes a brand new lens can have some dust that went into the lens during production, but I'm just wondering if I should rule out this lens due to the supposed small bit of dust in it.
