I purchased an F100FD a few weeks ago and today I noticed a few specs of dust inside the lens, so I blow into the lens to see if I could just blow the dust out. After I blow into the lens it fogged up and left some spots now visible in my photos, now how do I clean the lens now? I feel like I just broke my new camera! :(

Oh dear.

Never blow into the lens/camera yourself!!!! There is a lot of warm moisture in your breath which can make your lens/sensor worse. You need to use a blower of some sort or a lens leaning swab.

Hi system lord, if there are unmoveable marks within the optics, then your only option is to return it to a service centre for cleaning. Since it's still new, I would return it to the shop saying there's dust or other particles in the optics which are visible in your photos.
