    If can grow mushroom, already too late!

    But seriously, if the fungus has eaten into the lens coating, might be cheaper to replace the whole lens. Recoating it will cost $$$$$ and not many places can do it. You can always bring it back to the OEM for a consult before you decide.

    Too late a lesson for you...

    But well, you have a few options, a) look for the manufacturer and see if they want to clean the lens. b) look for other shops to clean it. c) look for handyman, like Fatique.

    last alternative, sell it off as junk...

    I'm amazed you are willing to spend on expensive lens like 70-200 f2.8 but you cant bear to get a dry cab??

    So u left them out in open??

    Try to repair them ASAP before the fungus etch in...

    50 mm f1.8 - between $40 to $60
    18-200mm 3.5/6.3 - between $60 to $100
    28-70mm f2.8 - between $50 to $80
    70-200mm f2.8 - above $100

    These quotes are based on last prices. They may have already changed since the GST has gone up.
