    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.

    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.

    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.

    You can ask any question you want. There is no guarantee that somebody can
    answer it. Questions on this ng regarding the dismantling of lenses typically
    draw a "don't do it" reply. We are, in the main, photographers, not camera and
    lens repair people.

    More importantly, it would be irresponsible to advise you to go ahead and take
    apart a lens, generally, and specifically if it is under warranty at this time
    .... it certainly would no longer be so after the first turn of a screw.

    Either take the lens back for repair under warranty (and dust and bugs getting
    in might not count) or to somebody who really knows what it is about.

    Cheers,
    Alan

    Also, this was something I read at least 30 years ago on the front of a
    large main-frame computer at one of the installations I was working
    at........It is an old joke......

    Ah! - I remember now.....This is what we used to call, "Katzenjammer kids
    humor". It was popularized by the cartoonist back in the 30's who drew the
    Katzenjammer kids comic strip........

    You asked a simple question...yes.
    But that's not the problem.
    I think it's a safe bet that very few people have had need to disasemble
    this particular lens, and those few who have--likely haven't seen your post.
    You've asked a very specific question that requires a SINGLE and UNUSUAL
    specific experience that most with this same lens haven't had need to gain.

    Nobody's ignoring your question...we/they/I just haven't taken apart our
    28-135 IS.
    If I had taken mine apart, I'd be gladly answering you here, as I'm sure
    may other would.

    Well, go right ahead...open the sucker up! Use an old dishtowel to wipe
    the elements clean of whatever crap might be floating around in there. I
    mean it's only an IS lens, I'm sure it will be fine.
