While the lens is in the US, if someone wants to send it to me, I can take a stab at cleaning the fungus. I promise not to make it any worse, and only delay it for one shipping day. I can tell by the photo of the rear element that someone has already tried to open that.
Great news. You are next in line so you can send your address to me or directly to post_eos (receiving the lens soon). Chris's photos look great and I'm glad everything is moving again after the long break.

Does anyone know what happened to this lens? I sent it out within a couple days of my post earlier this year.

That is too sad. Can't we at least try to trace it. So good to have been a a part of this incredible project, and would be a pity if it came to an end.

Does anyone know if post_eos got the lens?
I'm on the list, and could contribute an M 50/1.7 if needed.

I just reviewed my CC statements -- I sent it out via Fedex to him on April 21st. I'm going to dig through my receipts to see if I can find the tracking number.

[edit]

Couldn't find the original receipt, but the line item on my CC statement had the tracking number. Unfortunately, it looks like Fedex dumps their data after 90 days with Fedex Ground shipping, so there's no way to tell if it ever arrived. =\

I connected with post_eos, he should be checking in shortly.
The 50 has been found.
Who was next on the list?

Thanks for staying on top of this everyone. I bought a business this summer and let this project slide. And then I let it continue to slide. There isn't much of a list of those interested as far as I can find. Here's what I have:

Just1moreDave offered to clean it (and hopefully take a pic or two) so he should be next if he currently has time to help out.

I don't think these three have received the lens yet but I don't have addresses
