dust in your 70-200?

I just purchased a new 70-200VR and on advice of a friend, looked inside with a flashlight. I see one significant bit of what I think is dust. My friend said his had dust and another defect, and he sent his back.

Here's the question: do they all have some dust? I thought I read that these lenses do gather dust with use. If so, I won't bother to send it back. Also, I don't think it's worth exchanging it if there is a high probability of getting another with as much or more dust.

Please check your lenses and tell me how they look?

Thanks,

Denis
