Help with Spots on GR1s Lens!

Postby tubelistener » Sun Feb 25, 2018 12:07 am

Noticed these spots on my beloved GR1s' lens. Any idea on what it could be? It does not come off with a lens cloth. Could it be fungus? Thanks in advance.

hmmm ... look very much like fungus :(
not sure what you've used to clean it - I use Kodak Lens cleaning solution with Rosco lens cloths - anything harsher will remove your coating.

otherwise it may be on the inside ...
