Lens disassembly & cleaning

Hi

Just come across a great video of a 50mm lens being disassembled and cleaned. Gives you an idea of how complicated lenses are if this is a simple prime.

of course the fungus couldn't be on the outer lens it would be too simple, it had to be worst on the innermost lens element. Personally i think he took the video to have a hope in hell of re-assembling it

oh and good thing i don't have a spanner like that i might be tempted to do something along these lines
