Fungus on 90mm


I was given that 90mm but I knew it was ruined by fungus and it is indeed.
I haven't tried it yet, so can't really say anything about it affecting pictures or not but do you know of anyone who could clean it?
I know cleaning may affect the lens but still, it's worth trying.

If the fungi hasn't etched into the glass it may be salvageable. In the early stages, sometimes just giving the lens a sun bath can help. Take the lens cap off and set it in the Sun. It is worth a try.

Thanks but I've done it all summer, and still am, it's still sunny enough.
Didn't do any good. I guess it's too late.
