Re: Fungus on Lens - Help me

Fungus or not, I would try to clean both front and rear elements with some good lens cleaning products first, then check the inside by pointing it towards a light source and looking through from the rear element.  If it is a G lens, there is a lever on the lens mount that you can move to open up the aperture blades.  If there is indeed fungus or dust inside the lens, you might want to have it serviced.  Whether it is worth the money, you have to decide.

Electronic dry-boxes are now very affordable.  It is therefore highly recommended to have one.  Once you have the right humidity set, you don't need to worry any more.  It can also be used to keep dry other personal items, not just photographic equipment.
