    The Original Dust Mite Story


    Soon after I purchased a 200mm f/2.8 lens last year, it got a really large
    white spec on one of the optical elements inside. This spec was quite a bit
    larger than any other piece of fluff in any other lens I own. It was quite
    disturbing but did not affect the beautiful pictures that this lens took.

    Last week, I observed to my horror a dust mite crawling on this very
    same optical surface.

    It walked directly towards the spec, ate it, then walked out of site.
    I watched it happen in amazement. The lens is pretty clean now except
    for a single fiber which came from the internal baffle.

    The little mite has not reappeared since and i've disinfected quite a
    bit of stuff becasue of my new discovery about dust mites...i've never
    ever seen one before this...you sure can see anything when it's inside
    of a lens!

    I can only hope it did not lay eggs inside of my lens.

    I hope I can train these suckers so that I can sell my new internal
    lens cleaning technology.

    Sick.
