    slight problem with my rollei as it appears it's in worse shape than previously thought. I ran a roll of film through it and I believe maybe 1 frame was in the correct place which would require a new film transport system? Also, there's spot of what appears to be fungus between two of the lens elements, will have to check that out some more.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the film transport problems. Irregular spacing and skipping doesn't necessarily indicate a need for expensive replacement parts. According to what I've read from various experts a CLA should fix it up. But don't use the camera any more 'til it's fixed - the residue of old, dried lubes might cause something to be stressed.

    The lens can probably be disassembled and the existing growth disinfected. As long as you protect the lens from flare inducing light you'll probably never notice any problems from a spot.

    Lex is correct, a small bit of fungus can usually be removed without problem. It might even be something less serious.

    that's great, I'll set it aside while I drum up the money to have it CLA'd. I figure after the Christmas bank account drain is over I should be able to get it done right quick.
