How Does A Fly Crawl Into A $2100 Weather-sealed Canon Lens?

How Does A Fly Crawl Into A $2100 Weather-sealed Canon Lens?
The Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. How can a fly find its way into this weather-sealed lens?

This time Lens Rentals shares a somewhat different teardown of photographic gear.

They got back a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II lens from rental, and found a fly inside the lens. A lens that’s supposed to be weather-sealed. While it is still unclear how the fly managed to crawl into the lens, Roger Cicala shows and proofs that a fly inside a lens (or dust for that matter) has little to no effect on image quality. He also shows how difficult it is to remove the fly from the lens.
