    Default Help!!! There's a thin white line in my lens!

    I did not touch my lens for two days. Just now, i took it out for some regular cleaning, i saw a thing white line about 2mm thick in my Nokton 40mm. I tried to clean the surface of the lens but it remains in the lens. It looks like a fine piece of hair.

    May i enquiry if it is fungus or anything potentially harmful to my lens?

    Will it affect the quality of my pictures?

    Will it affect future buyers confidence?

    I agree. Usually the thickness of a hair is less than 1mm or 100,000 nanometers thick.

    Sorry for the miscommunications. I mean the length of the hair is about 2mm. Not the thickness of it.

    So it's just another case of 'dust panic'?

    All right, but i also presume that it might be some dusts or so as it's common in lenses.
