Unhappy DSLR Lenses - Prob with dust inside

Hello!

I am new to DSLRs. I have several lenses that have dust particles inside the lens. How do I get it and keep it out?

Lenses act a bit like pumps, drawing air in and out and it's almost impossible to prevent some dust entering the insides.

But unless these dust particles are particularly large or have clumped together, it's unlikely that they will affect the the quality of the image you see.

If the dust is really bad, the only option is to send the lens away for professional service.
