Should I worry about tiny dust specs on the filter.
I've just installed the new filter on my new lens and as hard as I tried I couldn't get it dust free and there are 4 tiny dust specs on the filter, in between the lens' front element and the filter itself.
Should I go for another try or just leave it be (as mentally hard as it'd be for me).
Is it even possible to get it spec free?
SLR/Lenses newbie , bear with me

Thanks in advance ,

If you can't see the specs in your shots I wouldn't worry about it.

Else you could buy a cheap Canon lense cleaning kit for $5 and remove the specs
with a blower, and re-attach.

Personally it isn't worth getting all worked up over it.

I don't use a UV filter myself, I use all my lenses "bare naked".
