Will Mould spread
I recently got into DSLR and had some old conventional and digital camera and they have got mould on their lens... they are not really in use so i dun really bother to send them for cleaning. Just wondering is there any quick and easy (and cheap) way of getting rid of the mould? And will the mould spread if they are all kept in the same dry cabinet together with the new DSLR?

It depends on where the mold is on. If it's on the outside surfaces, then maybe you can remove then with some solvents, but it will also certainly mean that you will damage your lense coating.
And yes, mold can spread. Fungus propagate by spores, so nearby lenses can be affected by mold too.
