Cleaning a lense for fungus is an iffy if not impossible procedure most of the time as the fungus attacks the material of the lense itself and parts of the lense have to be removed to remove the fungus.

But, the good news is any dealer of new or used equipment will have K-mount lenses. You can find both new and used lenses from B&H, KEH, Adorama, Calumet, and others - though those are some of the most reputable online/mail-order dealers of used and new equipment. You can find almost any kind of lense you'd desire.

How to clean fungi on lens


The success o cleaning fungus off a lens depends on how far the growth has gone.Light fungus on the outside surface off the lens can be removed by wiping a thin smear of Dove cream on the affected surface and then lightly removing using cotton buds. Follow this with a light polish using lens cleaning cloth. Never use cleaning tissue, it will scratch. A useful tip is to wash the lens cloth in hot water and dish washing liquid and rinse and ry before use. Have a spare clean cloth ready.
If the fungus is to heavy to remove you will still get some improvement using this cleaning method. If the fungus is on the inside it is up to you to decide whether to dismntle the lens.

How to clean sigma 500mm 4.5 fungus


Do you have a lens collimator and other gear needed to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens? If not, try this. Put the lens inside a window where it receives directly sunlight. Yes, you'll probably have to move the lens every few hours to it continues to receive direct sunlight. Do this for a day or two. If the fungus persists then take the lens to a reputable camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional clean the lens.

Film cartage broke missing parts


To repair this camera will be well over $100; my opinion not worth it. You would be better served purchasing another camera of the same type from ebay. An alternative terrific camera is the Pentax K1000, better yet K1000 SE. The SE has a split viewfinder, easy to focus. The K1000 have microprism that are more difficult to focus with especially in lower light; need good eyes. Then there is the Pentax K2, that at the time was their top of the line camera. All three cameras can be purchased for about $100-ish. Most will come with the Pentax 50mm f/2.0 lens.

Clean inside lens fungus


If you realy have fungus in your zoom lens, you can't do anything. If it does not show on the pictures, just keep the lens dry. (use silica gel) If you want it it be repaired, it will cost more than an new lens.

Fungus (oil spray/mist?) on inner lens surfaces - how to disassemble and clean a Canon 75-300mm EF AF lens? A skeleton picture would also be helpful. Thanks, Tom.


Okay. I just wanted to scare you away from ruining a perfectly good (or nearly so) lens, but a learning project is a different matter. And a lens collimator is not that hard to build. One source is the book "Camera Maintenance & Repair" by Thomas Tomosy. I'm sure a quick Google search would show even more.

I did the same thing myself decades ago, taking apart a damaged zoom lens. Unfortunately, I never got it working properly again :-( But it was an educational experience, even though I didn't have a lens collimator...

I have a Minolta Rokkor-x 200mm telephoto lens with fungus


Lens fungus is really common and it's not cost effective to repair. Even if the fungus is removed then the multicoatings are permanently damaged.

The good news is that until the fungus becomes pretty severe the image quality doesn't suffer much as most photos use the lens stopped down to some extent and this means that if the centre of the lens is clear then there's nothing to block the light paths.

Unfortunately it does tend to spread, so keep affected lenses in a separate camera bag to the rest and if you can afford to do so then throw them away and replace your camera bag as it will be loaded with microscopic spores waiting to attack more lenses. Making sure that your camera and lenses are completely dry and free of condensation before storing them until next used will prevent reoccurence.

Fresnal lense


What kind of camera? Some camera's have removable fresnel lens held on by a spring loaded frame. Other camera's must be disassembled to replace the lens. There is no way to repair a damaged fresnel lens.
Pentax K1000 must be disassembled.
