I just bought a Tamron 28-300for a vacation lens, but there are 2-3 rather large dust flakes on the inside of the lens (near the rear) that are very visible. Is there a good way to get some air in there to blow them around or something so they're not right in the center of the lens?

It really is bad enough that if I can't at least move these buggers I'll have to return it. Any thoughts?

Remove the rear lens elements and clean them...Or hire it done. If that is more than you want to get involved in send it back. Very hard to do anything to it with it assembled!

Are you absolutly sure it is the lens and not dust on the sensor?

Yep. I can see it for one, and it's not there on other lenses.
