you will haveTo remove the dust, you need to remove the lens and take it apart in a cleanroom. This will involve removing the sensor and cleaning both the sensor and lens, and then inspecting the lens for dust that is further in there, to the point you will have to removetake the whole lens apart and clean each dirty element. The use of a cleanroom is essential, since taking it apart anywhere else is likely to make the problem worse.
Generally speaking, if there is visible dust it is usually on
the sensor fromor right in front of it. If the lensdust is somewhere else, it isn't as likely to affect the image but can stil do so if it is big enough.
