I'm not talking about the odd dust particle or titchy patch of mould on a small part of one element. This isn't rocket science!
I was referring to the suggestion of using a LED torch expecting a flurry of panic posts because there was a speck of dust in a lens. Of course, if you send another makers Luxury zoom off to be cleaned it can come back sharper because it was reassembled more accurately than it left the factory.
