    Default Recommendation for lens cleaning service

    85mm F1.8 Nikkor lens need a cleaning service to remove fungus inside.
    Any recommendation for such service at an affordable rate ? ( > S$50)
    I used to go to an experienced guy David from the forum but has lost his contact. Does anyone has his contact ?

    Thanks in advance for your kind information.

    David is known as 'fatigue' here. Contact details are in his signature.
    Btw: charging more than $50 (>$50) is not a problem for anyone 😊

    You've forgotten you already posted a thread before you ask the same question in Nikon section?

    By the way, I may want to sell the lens after the cleaning ( hardly ever used but sit in the closet)
    What kind of resell price should I look for in your opinion? Thanks

    Look for the price of similar lenses in Buy & Sell. Your lens shouldn't be offered for more given the history of fungus and cleaning (which you should state clearly).
