I don't recall a 35mm Sonnar lens. Did you guys and gals see that Canon rear cap "A" bid over $50? I'm digging in my drawers to see if I have one somewhere.

See if the seller will take the lens back if the speck bothers you. You probably will see no degradation in your images because of this minor speck of hair. I've seen this before in a Focotar...

I have a Canon Powershot A310 which is ok. It has a fixed lens, takes two seconds to power up, viewfinder is worthless(use the LCD instead). Almost all consumer digital cameras have a pop out zoom.

I recommend that you use an Ilford anti-static cloth. It gets oily fingerprints off too. I also use canned air as needed.
