Question about Kyocera Cameras
I bought a second hand Contax SLR 2/135 lens, & tried to clean a with some Kodak lens cleaning fluid; seems I applied it too generously, as it seeped beneath the front lens element, & now I have got a nearly uniform haze all over it, rendering it practically useless. Please, what can be done about it? I understand that it is a MM lens - I'd be delighted to have it CLAed, if possible.
Good idea. Fixya does not provide a cleaning or repair service - take it to your local service centre.

Haze is condensation. I am schooled in optics and physics. Seriously, if you go to a local pawn shop they will verify what I say. Mold in the lens optics will follow. I would gladly send you a lens if you are destitute but do not throw bad money (time) after good. Steve Medley

if it is only fogged you can blow hot air on the lens while fully zoomed in and after the water has evaporated, zoom out to compress the moist air out. do this several times.

Your lens may have to be disassembled for cleaning, then readjusted. Try sending it to PhotoTech Repair Service in NYC. They are Nikon authorized, and can do the repair under warranty if you still have it. Also if you join they're facebook page, they will give you a 10% discount.
Here is the facebook page link, it has everything you need to send it in.
