    To me it looks like small blobs or 'dirt' which is very prominent. Your lens coatings may face discolourations too.

    My old Nikon binoculars looks a lot worse than that.

    If you going to keep it, better use UV to kill off the fungus. Even if you leave in drybox, there is still a chance for it to grow when you are using it when shooting.

    If you killed the fungus & it stops growing & does not affect the pics... its still ok. But OUCH... you bought it at the price of a lens without fungus
    how do you kill the fungus with UV?

    If the fungus is really bad it may eat between the sandwich lens. If this happen the will need to replace the elements.
