Anybody do a home disassembly and cleaning of this lens. I have a nasty
white hair on the outside of the second element and some dead curled-up
creepy crawly on the inside of the second rear element. I'm not impressed
with the dust seals on this lens so far as it is only 2 months old tomorrow;
but the optics are great.

I have the same lens but without anything inside it! I would suggest as it's
only 2 months old you get it serviced by Canon in order to not affect the
guarentee.

Wow, that was some of the worst Faux Deutsch Ich habe gesehen. I am
thoroughly impressed with your lack of abilities and the utter uselessness
of your reply.

Thanks for trying, Please don't try again.

I'm not that worried about the guarentee. I am, however, worried about the
turn around time on a CLA and/or the mess I may make if the lens starts
shooting springs all over. Thus, has anyone done it and what do I need to
be aware of if I do take it apart?

Frankly, the prospect of a CLA every 2 months is a little troublesome long
term.

Never heard of a 'tongue-in-cheek' comment? Lighten up; it was in jest.

Jim,

I can't see your orig. reply, but it is in reply to the "gafingerpoken" post
then you're really popping the cork over nothing... it is classic "boilerplate"
humor that you can find in many labs, engineering schools and companies.

Cheers,
Alan

Just send it back. It's not all that great a lens. Save your money - buy
an L lens.

Get a life. That little speech is very well known.

I apparently made a mistake in asking what I assumed was a simple 35mm
equipment question to this group. You all have my deepest and sincerest
apologies for troubling you all with an on topic post. My mistake, I'll try
not to do it again.
