Fungus in the lens

I can't believe it!! A new camera with fungus in the lens!

I shone an led torch in the lens to check the zoom mechanism, and discovered that the 'bump' was due to 2 of the 3 slider channels being slightly damaged.

Then what I thought (at first) was a bit of dust on the lens front, turns out to be dust inside one of the front elements, then horror of horrors, A BIG PATCH of FUNGUS!! about half the size of my thumb nail!.

I am going to have to send it back, surely this is unacceptable for a brand new camera.
