Today's question
Lens cleaning

I was wondering about how to clean a lens. I have a 35-80mm kit zoom lens that is several years old (bought in '92) and it has some dust on the inside of the lens. Is it worth to have it cleaned by Canon or is it possibly by a third party or my self to clean it? I only ask as I had dropped a 50mm fixed lens (popped apart) and was able to get it back in one piece and has worked fine since. Is a zoom much different? Or is the money better to be put into an other lens.
