BEWARE of Vintage Lens Fungus
|A fallen Yashica ML 50mm 1:2|
One thing to be aware of when purchasing from flea bay (eBay) and other places is look for any instances of fungus matter inside the lens elements. It can be either in the front or the back. You can't clean fungus easily with these lens since the cost to have them cleaned is not proportionate to how much they cost. The expense is more than the purchase price. Nothing makes you feel worse than a huge spot of fungus or the beginning of fungus growth. So make sure you double check and look over more than twice over pictures by sellers online and in person.
So take these words of wisdom and inspect lens merch with care.
