Is that moss on my lens?
5 months ago

Hi,

I've had some white marks on my 18-55 for at least a few months., on the zoom ring and the end of the focus ring. I don't take specific care but keep it in a dry box around 50% humidity whenever I'm not travelling. I'm wondering whether that's moss on it as, if it is, I don't want it to spread to other lenses or the camera body. Is there something I should do?

Zoom in for 100% view. Taken with flash so the white is amplified.

Thanks in advance.
