Hi all again

I have a friend who has a lense which she has been using with her film Canon EOS and wishes to use with her new 400D, However when she had her last lot of prints enlarged she noticed there was quite bad spotting. On closer inspection of the lense it would appear that dust has got inside. Should she have it cleaned or replace it. All advice welcome as we both still relative novices on steep teach yourself curve smile.gif. Much thanks Creekjumper biggrin.gif

This all depends on how expensive the lens is - what model is it?

What sort of spots? Are they white or dark? White ones could be coming from the camera body itself, and not the lens. If they are from the camera body (and that could be, even with a brand-spanking new one) it could be that the imaging sensor needs to be cleaned, which is generally not a job a inexperienced person needs to take on, being that you can ruin your camera by doing it improperly.

However, if it is the lens, and she is really fond of it (we get SO attached to our favorite things, don't we?) then, by all means, have an experienced technician take a look at it.
