    NICK, YES TO ALL YOU HAVE SAID. I JUST LIKE TO BE MY OWN TECHNICIAN.
    I RECENTLY USED THE CAMERA AFTER BEING STORED FOR 6 YRS. I ARRIVED HERE
    TO PUERTO RICO FROM CHICAGO WHERE I ORIGINALLY BOUGHT THE LENSE, AND
    USED IT VERY LITTLE. I TOOK A ROLL OF PICTURES DURING THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS AND DID'NT NOTICE ANYTHING UNUSUAL ABOUT THE PRINTS. IT WAS A LITTLE LATER, SHOPPING ON EBAY FOR A 75-300 ZOOM THAT I DISCOVERED THE
    SUBJECT OF FUNGUS. UPON INSPECTION OF MY 50MM, 135MM, & THE 28-80MM.
    SURE ENOUGH ALL HAD FUNGUS. IF I HAD'NT READ ABOUT IT, I PROBABLY WOULD'NT
    EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT. SHIPPING ALL TO A TECHNICIAN, AND PAYING THE FEE,
    WOULD AMOUNT TO A SUM IN EXCESS OF THE VALUE OF ALL THREE. I'LL JUST
    PRETEND I'M SHOOTING THROUGH GAUZE LIKE THE HOLLYWOOD FILM GUYS.
    I WOULD LIKE TO GET THIS ISSUE OF TYPE SIZE SETTLED, I'VE HAD
    THE SAME REACTION ON MY TELESCOPE WEB. WHERE DID THIS IDEA OF SHOUTING
    EVER COME FROM ANYWAY, IT'S SILLY, I THINK THE TELESCOPE WEBSITE HAS
    A WAY OF LISTING MY THREADS IN LOWER CASE WITH CAPS. IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES; I'M NOT POSITIVE, BUT I SEEM TO REMEMBER SEEING THAT THE LAST
    TIME I VISITED THE FORUM. FORGIVE ME GUYS, I CANT SEE THOSE LITTLE MIDGIT
    LETTERS AND NUMBERS. O.K. ??? JIM D.

    Puerto Rico is pretty humid when it comes to storing camera gear.
    I'd suggest a couple of options.
    1)Store the equipment with a LOT of silica gel or
    2)use a dedicated cabinet with a low wattage lamp on all the time.

    Zoom lenses are sometimes a pita to reassemble and require some scribe marks on Dis-assembly for proper realignment.
    Simple stuff first.
    Is it a "one-touch" lens with a single zoom/focus ring or "two-touch" with two separate rings?
    The one touch lenses seem (to me) easier to deal with. Most of them can be broken down pretty easily.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
