    so i was looking at my old film slr camera and noticed some dust specks. i took out the lens to examine it and noticed stuff that looks like cracks around the specs. the specs are on the inside of the lens.
    managed to get some good pictures:

    fungus..
    Some had results by leaving it exposed to a UV lamp for a long time (in order of weeks).

    As my post up top says...

    "Some had results by leaving it exposed to a UV lamp for a long time (in order of weeks)."

    The best and most effective method is to have the lens go through a CLA.. but that costs money.
