Haze on Contax CY 85mm f1.4?
Haze on Contax CY 85mm f1.4?
7 months ago
Hi all, I just bought this lens recently, bought it from a local film camera shop according to their listing online they said the lens was clean, no scratch, no haze and no fungus. But shining my phone flashlight through I think there is quite a lot of haze? Is there any possibility to clean this lens, or should I return it? I am not too fussed about the price, since I used money handed out by my government (a consumption voucher) to purchase this lens. It would be great to be able to clean this lens. I have not tried it out on my camera yet since I do not have an appropriate adaptor. I am relatively new to purchasing vintage lenses, any advice would be much appreciated!
