Looks like you were having fun. Let us know how you like the 100mm f/2.8 Macro.

Hi Jim, sorry to bother you again. I just pickup a 28/2.8 ( almost free ) but the lens has some fungus on the inside elements ( looks real bad ). Is it worth to sent out for cleaning it, and when can I find those place for cleaning the lens? Thanks.

Kenny

I've never had one fixed. So, I don't know what it would cost you. You may want to try http://www.keh.com

But. chances are, you could buy another lens for what they would charge to clean it, depending on the version (an older model with 49mm threads versus a newer model with 55mm threads). Here are some examples:

Hi, Jim. Thanks for the info. I just follow a online guide to disassemble the lens and clean the fungus, hopefully they won't come back again ( I paid $20 for the lens and 3 filters - minolta 1A,B and UV ). This is the link : http://www.pbase.com/pganzel/maxxum_...28_disassembly
