    Default Is this fungus?




    As seen in the picture. It has a yellow dot in the middle of a patch. And when I shine light on it, it became like milky white color.. Is this fungus?

    It looks like a dust speck in the first pic but suspiciously like fungus in the second pic. Fungus tend to grow like a spider-web.

    For peace of mind, get it checked.

    Is it still warranty? My Olympus had a dust just 2weeks after buying it, and I got it cleaned for free.

    It looks like a legacy OM lens though. Doubt there is any more warranty on these lenses anymore.

    Looks like fungus but it also looks like it is just on the surface of the first elemeent. Have you tried wiping with alcohol?

    It's a OM 50mm f1.8 no longer have warranty. I had tried wiping it with alcohol. But it's inside the lens. Any idea roughly how much it will cost for me to send it for cleaning?

    You can try Steven at camerahospital.com to give an assessment. I just sent my 53 leica for servicing, price is good, job well done.
