I know Brian. Had coffee with his friend Bob when he was in-town. Nice guy. Brian wrote up that page before we discovered that there IS a legitimate cure, which I've tried and it works.Originally Posted by glennyong
Simply, go to Sim Lim and buy a UV lamp. These give out UV-B, and are used for reading watermarks, sun-tanning or party effects. Wrap your lens in alum foil (lenscap off) with only rear-element end exposed and facing the lamp ... about 5-10cm away from tube. After about 2-3 weeks, the yellowing will fade and sometimes disappear. Repeat treatment every 30years if yellowing returns. Keep area well ventilated as not to get too warm ... because that's bad for the compound lens element, which may show bubbles. It doesn't affect performance, just not nice to look at.
I've tried it on old Super-takumars, Nikon pre-AI 35/1.4 ... works.
Hmmm... interesting tip.Originally Posted by Keltzar
