Question about Tamron 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD Lens for Minolta Maxxum
What a great lens my Tamron 70-300 has been in the past. It was put away for a few months in what I thought was a good dry place, when I unpacked it I noticed that it had foggy images-maybe like mildew might have collected on one of the elements. What is it going to cost me to fix it, and can it be fixed? The lens is probably about ten years old.
If you have fungus in the lens there isn't much you can do. If you have moisture in the lens there is a little trick that I've used that has worked well for me. Extend the zoom all the way out on the lens, then use a hair dryer to blow air into the lens at the base of the extended zoom. Don't blow directly on the lens optics. When you are cleaning your lenses do not blow on them. That is a major contributor to moisture in a lens.

Sometimes you can get fungus on lens elements.
You can probably replace cheaper than having repaired. Try ebay.
