    I have an Olympus 45mm lens and was wondering if this lens has dust on the inside? It looks weird to me. Notice the 5 small specs in the first shot. Never seen a lens like this before...It does not seem to impact the pictures in any way from what I can tell.

    They look like reflections to me. Did you have a light on in the room when you took the photos?

    Look very much like reflections of a light source/sources as the pattern has changed from first to second photo and looks to be on surface not inside glass.

    It looks like there is a a possible dust speck on the front element in the second photo that should wipe off.

    I would certainly be very surprised and annoyed if there were dust spots of this size/quantity inside the elements.
