Is your lens really broken?

Hi, I have a Sony a6400 mirrorless (E or FE mount) and on my trip to Uluru last week I noticed a black dot ( a chip/scratch) is on all of my pics. I can photoshop them out but it time to replace the lens. I broke the 18-55mm lens that came with the camera. Its ok, but i want a more professional lens but my max budget is $1200 AUD ($1000 US).

The dot on your pictures is almost certainly not from your lens. It is most probably dirt on your sensor. You can check for this by taking 2 pictures, one with the lens wide open and one with the lens at f/16. If you have dirt on your sensor, the dot will be much more visible at f/16. Dirt can be removed either by you (with a sensor cleaning kit) or by others (for money).

Is this what you're referring to when you say "I broke the 18-55 lens"? Or did you actually break the lens, like by dropping it on a rock?
