    Unhappy Dust IN lens? (Pro 1)

    I just got a Pro1, then returned it after four days because there was a lot of dust inside the lens already. Now I've got this happening again in just a few days with the replacement.

    I just wanted to verify that this is a (relatively) big deal and that lenses are supposed to be extremely well sealed, right?

    Also, has anyone else seen this with the Pro1?

    It happens

    That's too bad. And with a new camera, you should definitely return it. Unless there's a coating of dust in the lens, it probably won't make any apparent difference. But it does indicate inadequate sealing and I would be worried about the dust continuing to build up until it is a problem.

    I think you did the right thing. I'd send the new one back, too. Hopefully there's a bad batch, or they figure out a way to fix the problem.
