    Default Fungus!!!!!

    Hi guys, can anyone give me some names and contacts of shops or companies that do cleaning of lens?

    I went to have my Tamron 17-50 checked at the shop beside CP in Peninsular, and there was a fungus spot on it. Terribly sad now. I asked for a quote for cleaning the lens, just the front element itself. It was $140. It's pretty reasonable but I would like to know if there are any better deals or any more trustworthy shops that CSers usually go to for cleaning of camera or lenses? Please let me know if you know of any Thank you very much

    Anyway, I RARELY USE MY CAMERA IN WET AREAS AND IT'S MOST OF THE TIME IN A DRYBOX, but maybe it's just the Singapore humidity. ARGH! But it's cool. Costs of having a wife :P
