OK, truth is I got anxious and there's still a couple of internal dust specks as you can see. But hugely, totally better than the start. Learn from my mistakes: I used the butt end of a screwdriver to 'rub' the front glass seal back down and it left some marks. Should have just pressed it down something soft. Still at this point, a successful first effort IMHO.

This information is very interesting. Thank you for sharing. My lens is also full of dust, which is very disappointing. Would you tell me what adhesive did you use?

My seal came off by just putting my finger under it. Very loose!
I am about to open this thing up. say a prayer!
I have spots on the inside of the lens from water damage. Do I use any special cleaner on the inside?

What type of adhesive should I use to put the seal back on?
