    I have taken apart some lenses, and the dirt or haze in them was only on the elements nearest to the aperture, i.e. the innermost surfaces facing the aperture. The lens groups themselves should not be dismantled by an amateur or you may well ruin the lens.

    I bought a 90/2.8 Elmarit (1965) last year. The lens came with a receipt from Sherry Krauter at Golden Touch for a CLA. Cost: $65. Sherry's reputation is above reproach. Peace of mind and knowing the job was done right was worth more than $65 to me.

    I echo this recommendation. I bought a nickel Summar off eBay recently and while it had no scratches, it had tons of internal haze -- so much so, that the local Leica repair folks said it was beyond hope. I sent it to Sherry. Three weeks later I got back a lens that looks new. Total cost: $95 plus shipping. Sherry is a magician when it comes to reviving Leica glass. If it can't be fixed, she will tell you so and send it back at no cost.

    I give up. What is a "rubber bung?"

    Is it a suction cup?
