The reason I bought this particular 0,95 was because it was in absolutely mint condition with no flaws either internally or externally, (and also incidentally came with its original caps and a few filters and shades in their original leather cases).
Now I'm concerned that when (if?) I get it back, that the chances that it's been infected with fungus during the long time that Malcolm has had it in his workshop will have increased. Does anyone here have any idea whether this is likely?
I'm sure that if I ask him this directly he'll deny it. But then he's promised to be done with the work many, many times before, so I'm not sure how much I can rely on his word.
I'd be reluctant to use the lens if there's even a hint of fungus, as none of my existing lenses have any trace of mould - and the thought of infecting the Noctilux or any of the Summiluxes is making me nervous about the whole procedure now.
Any advice gratefully received.
