Thank you everyone.  I've only had the lens a year and it's so expensive to replace. I've written to Nikon for an estimate. Luckily it's only a tiny amount and not in the center so you can't see it in images. I'll try the sun suggestion and I also have a blue light which I can try.


From now on i'm keeping all my lenses in Ziplock bags with Silica packs!


Thanks again!

During my stay in Roatan i had some stuff from Ikelite shipped from Miami as there is a freight company who deliver to Roatan.

It was not really expensive and worked well, but don't ask me who the freight forwarder was.

cleaning lenses from fungus is a awkward task and it most likely won't last a long time as ance the lens is infected then it is very hard to kill the spores.

Also it seems that the fungus etch the coating and leaves some "trails" etched in the affected lens(es), have a look here:


There are some companies who do that but you have to decide if the $$S for it is worth or if you better opt for a new/used lens.


I had issues with fungus on the same lens i bought used some years ago and the price for having it professionally cleaned and the affected lens elements replaced

was expensive as the price for a new 105mm micro VRII.


In any case: Google is your friend to do some further research how to clean and avoid fungus in lenses.



Thank you so much
