I've read online that it's not a good idea to a put a fungus-infected lens back on the camera because the spores might get into the camera body itself. This sounds like a real possibility. I'm leaving the lens in the sunlight for hours on end in hopes that it will kill the fungus. No way of knowing if that will be adequate, though. Bummer.

At least fungus in the body would be a much simpler process to clean!

I suppose. Probably it's more of a concern if the fungus is on the rear element rather than the front one, but who knows. I'll have to risk it.

  • I had the Sony RX10 II and it developed a lens “fungus”, but after research on Google it turns out it was off gasing from a reaction of the adhesives used and the plastic. The appearance on the front element was minute particles almost like very fine salt / sand. However it didn’t have an impact on the image sharpness, but I did sell it to someone who really wanted it and I made them totally aware of the problem which they accepted.
