I've just printed my first 4 x 5 neg's, and I'm discovering the joys of dust. I've done 35mm for awhile and haven'et really had a problem with dust etc., but now I seem to have all sorts of problems with my negs.

I read some stuff on spot pens etc. for covering spots and other problems in the finished print. Is that par for the course dealing with large negatives like 4 x 5 or should using spot pents etc. be something that's rarely done. I guess I'm asking if dust on the prints is normal or if I should be able to get better results with better practices.
