So, I bought a lens with haze/fog/fungus…

Got swept away in eBay jumping from listing to listing as the clock was ticking down, and ended up buying a Nikkor 20mm f2.8 that’s pretty foggy. Getting it cleaned professionally will cost almost as much as the lens cost ~$200.

  • Is there a market for foggy lenses? I hate to throw it out, and wouldn’t mind taking a loss
  • any point trying to clean it myself? does the fog tend to return over time? (I have no experience taking delicate things apart)

as an aside, I wish there was a way in eBay to hide listings you don’t want to see.
