I have a Nikon 70-300 VR approaching its 5 year extended warranty. I have noticed a piece of dust/dirt last year on the inside of the front element, tapped it a little and it went away, obviously now it inside the barrel somewhere. Do you think it worth sending it in to Nikon to clean? I mean I would pay for shipping to them but I’m afraid it may come back dirtier because they would be opening up the lens.
