Self Portrait

Self Portrait - NEX-5 & Olympus OM 24mm f2.8. Click for larger.

Despite the fact that there is fungus growing in the rear elements, this OM 24mm f2.8 is great. Small in size but not in performance.  Very happy with it, although I would still like to have the fungus cleaned if I could get it done cheaply.


  1. clean it at home ... and do it before you put it near your camera again. A quick light spray of Windex and a quick wipe with a lens tissue will do it.

    You do NOT want that stuff spreading its spoors onto your sensor.

    Windex contains ammonia and will kill the mold and the spoors almost instantly.

  2. @obakesan: thanks for the advice. I will see if I can do it myself without destroying the lens which, unfortunately, happens too often.
