    basically just keep your gear away from moisture and extreme humidity (almost impossible in the Phils.). Dry boxes, dry cabinets, or just placing silica gel in your camera bag helps.

    Getting rid of fungus on AF-D lenses

    Any tips on where in Hidalgo is the best place to have Nikon Nikkor AF and AF-D lenses cleaned of fungus?

    I don't think it's in the cement or in between (or that deep in) the elements and having it cleaned will not leave permanent scars.

    I'm just bothered because at maximum apertures, my eyes tell me that the photos are softer than usual. Any tip and or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Getting rid of fungus on AF-D lenses

    Try Ady Balce a well known lens repairman at Pinoyphotography ....

    Call him, he doesnt answer text messages. 0917-9394487

    He's not from Hidalgo.

    A friend of mine already tried him. Cleaned the fungus from a Nikkor 28-200 AFD lens.

    Re: Getting rid of fungus on AF-D lenses

    If it's that bad, then get it cleaned asap. Fungus secretes hydroflouric acid (read this in an article). Glass etching uses that kind of acid so you can figure out what it can do to your lens.

    Thanks sir. Any idea on how much it will cost me? Just wanted to have a rough estimate before calling him. Thanks for the contact sir.

    Thanks sir, I'm pretty aware of this stuff. It could leave permanent scratches on my lens, but in my case I don't think it will. I have a 40-96mm Non-AI Nikkor lens that has much more fungus than this, and having it cleaned would be futile.

    A quotation famous from Mr. Ady is "BAHALA KA NA"..... that is what he also told my friend who had his lens cleaned. For very serious cleaning....... maybe he would tag a price for it. Just call him.
