If you have dust in the lens, it probably won't even show up on the shot. I have some small pieces of dust in my lenses and they never show up. The only thing you would want to clean in the front and back of the lens, as well as the sensor. Everything else should be fine. I've had a few on the mirror in the viewfinder, but those don't affect the shot. You can try using some canned air but I doubt it would help
