    That's weird. I have a Componon-S lens that had been damaged by frost. Schneider repaired it for less than a hundred Euros and they had to disassemble the entire lens.

    I dont know what "frost damage" is, but fungus cannot be repaired and requires new lens elements.

    I am not deep into the details of lens engineering, but there appears to be some kind of lacquer on the rim of each lens element. This was apparently damaged when I stored the lens in a very humid place over the winter. The damage was visible from the outside, it looked a bit like bubbles at the rim of the lenses. I don't think it affected the optical performance, but I had Schneider repair it anyway. Schneider disassembled the lens and re-applied the lacquer. It looks like new now.
