eBay find: make fungus a good thing!

PENTAX Pentax-M SMC 50mm f/1.7 Lens For Pentax 27075023062 | eBay

Reminds me of the advice they give you for job interviews, where you should turn a bad quality into a good one. The amount of fungus this lens has it looks like you'd lose a stop of light though :') .

I just listed a lens with slight fungus, I wish I'd thought of that one...

Some years back I advertised lenses as having "enough fungus to make mushroom soup".

How do you beat a free meal with your purchase?
