  1. gordonrussell76, I totally agree, and that's why in my method I immediately cover the sensor with the camera's body cap when taking the lens off.
  2. Thanks everyone for your input, and sorry it took me a while to respond! At least for now, I am tempted to try a few lenses every time I'm out and shooting, since I'm new to the interchangeable lens camera field. For now, I have decided to use the following method, which is probably not the most efficient way to do it but I think it is rather safe: 1) Take and hold the camera's body cap and the lens's rear cap in one hand. 2) Press the release button and turn the lens. Bring the camera's cap close, and when you remove the lens, cover the sensor with the camera's cap simultaneously. 3) Hold the removed lens's back towards the ground while removing it, and cover it with its rear cap. Place it inside your bag, etc. 4) Take the new lens with its rear part facing downwards, remove its rear cap and bring it close to the camera body. Then remove the camera's cap and immediately place the lens onto the camera. 5) Store your caps properly.
  3. Hi all, My Fuji X-T1 which I recently bought is my first interchangeable lens camera, so I'm really not that skilled at replacing my lenses in a rapid and safe manner. Unfortunately, this issue troubles me the most when I'm outdoors, making me worried about getting contaminants into the lens/sensor. I would love to learn from you what is your method of doing this with your Fuji camera! I guess this is a noob question, but then again, that's what I am Thanks!
  4. Exactly why I will never agree for them to try and clean it.
  5. Thanks milandro, I just sent them a message. Hopefully they will respond quickly.
  6. Yeah, there's a lot to what you're saying. I just spoke with the main Fuji representatives in my country, and they said that I need to bring it in and they will CLEAN it. I said - Isn't it a pity to start opening a brand new lens and isn't it just worth to be fair about it and replace it? They said - That's something "the managers" will have to decide. So here's where I'm at - I could go there (it's a bit of a drive) and probably argue with them, most likely not getting what I want in the end(to replace it) and hence just wasting my time since I'm definitely not agreeing to them opening the lens. OR I could just forget about it, hoping that speck of dust won't cause any harm. What do you think? I did come up with the idea to just contact the main international offices of Fuji, though I can't really seem to find their email? They just want me to refer to the local representative.
  7. Thanks Sluw & Milandro for replying. The thing is, can't the guys at the manufacturer's authorized lab in my country tell me - "Hey, this lens has been with you for a few weeks now, we have no way to know how you handled it and it could be that this speck is your fault, we're not going to replace it" ? Just thinking about this before spending a few hours driving back and forth.
  8. Hello everyone, A few weeks ago I bought the Fuji 90mm but didn't get to use it due to a tight schedule this past month (actually, I only tried it out just once when at home). It has been sitting inside a camera bag all this time. Yesterday when I took it out, I inspected it and saw this quite conspicuous speck WITHIN the lens itself (you can see it in the photo attached, slightly down left to the middle of the lens). I am quite sure it's dust. Now I know that every lens accumulates dust no matter how well you take care of it, and it shouldn't really affect the images you take, but I guess I thought it would be different with this weather & dust resistant lens? especially when it is brand new, haven't been used and stored properly? What do you guys think I should do? Continue as if nothing happened, or try and have it replaced? Thanks
