Question about Camera Lenses
Is it true about this canon lens having a dust acummulation problem as shared by so many users in so many reviews? If this is so what would help correct this? Those that have used Lens filters have mixed opinions about the effectiveness of this solution.
I have the 17 - 55 IS 2.8 and it was dusty right out of the box, brand new! The vendor will have it serviced as part of the warrenty but this is a serious design fault for a lens that is touted to deliver L series image quality (some reviews make this image claim, not Canon). Anyhow I can't say that the dust has greatly affected my images, I just don't like the fact that the dust is there or that it could get worse or return after service. If it give me much more trouble I'll swap it for a 24-105 IS f4 L.

My $50,000.00 Hasselblad H3 and Sinar HY6 have no weather seal and I have no problem. Just have to learn not to open in dusty areas.
Those weather seals will go bad within 6 years, then you have problem with light leaks and money for the company.
That's companies way of making money after selling you products.
