front lense - dead bug inside

Was to take a picture and saw some shadow in the viewfinder. It turned out the there was a dead bug (earwig) behind the front lense possibly pressed flat by the zoom-lense. How to clean without disassample everything?

You'll have to disassemble the lens, I don't think there's any alternative.

If you're brave, you could try to do it yourself, but be warned, the SX50 is a very delicate piece of gear.

Here's a video that shows how to take the camera apart, including the lens.
