    I just got this lens a couple of days ago from the buy and sell forum and noticed today that there were two rather large particles inside the lens. Is this something I should be worried about? I know little particles of dust are inevitable but I've just never seen any large pieces of dust like these inside any of my lens. I'm not even sure if its dust. When I look at it really closely, it kind of looks like little tiny metal shavings. I used the lens last night and took a few pictures at a New Years party and seemed to work okay. Is there anything I should look out for when examining my pictures or am I just worrying for nothing? any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    whew! Glad to know I'm not the only one. It is quite annoying every time I look into the lens but I guess I'll just have to learn to live with it. Thanks
