    Fungus doesn't affect lenses stored in good conditions, but fungal spores can remain dormant for long periods of time so an affected lens will get worse if returned to poor conditions.

    I had a couple of Hass. Sonnars CLA'd recently, both showing signs of fungus. Not a problem if caught in time but it can damage the glass if left untreated. My repairman advised me NOT to STORE my lenses in my super leather Hasselblad Reporter case or any other leather case for that matter. My gear used to be housed in what I thought was a decent purpose built cupboard but it appears, in the wrong part of the house. I'm thinking a display cabinet in a warm lounge might be the answer but I doubt the lady will go for it. Yes, I do wear the trousers but I don't push my luck.

    If the lady doesn't go for it trade her in against some better equipment

    Yes, return the lens. Fungus is not good. Oil on the blades is bad on SLRs but not rangefinders.

    No chance, when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she said, A DIVORCE. I told her I wasn't planning to spend that much. Do I wear the trousers or what? Have to go, she's just come in.

    Galah - Incredible! I have to say, if I had such a lens, I think I'd be too scared to mount it - it looks like it's alive with fungus.

    It looks just great, mudman, no way of telling the lens has a problem.
