Just found a small patch of porous grey matter about <5mm across on the rear element of an old lens. There appears to be some grey matter on the periphery as well in thread-like form.

How much does it take to service this lens? It's a 80-200/2.8. If I ignore this patch, will it spread like disease to the rest of the elements??

Thanks.

shouldn't spread so long as you keep it in a dry cabinet. if the cotton candy threads grow more, isolate it from your other lenses, and pray for the best...
