    Default old lense problems.(brought over from newbie thread)

    hi, i have have been look ard on the net to see the problems with older lenses and came up with lens creep, hazzy optics, oil on shutter leaves and mould.
    now i know after reading that mould might not be able to be removed completely but its always good to let sunshine into ur lens once in awhile for a more or less cure for mould.

    for hazzy lenses i guess can get it serviced?

    what about lens creep? any cure?

    and oil on shutter leaves ( aperture blades) i noe that its possible to get it cleaned but what if its on the lens(oil) ? unlikely? i have noticed that there is one pic on web that has oil like substance on the front optics? how is this possible?

    and where can all this be done in singapore?

    You can inquire with a fellow CS'er called Fatigue (David) he does wonderful cleaning of lenses and, he'll be able to advise you better.
