I was shooting a Basketball game and decided to pull out my trusty 80-200mm for some close ups. It took little time to notice that there was something unusual under the front element which appeared like the flaky glaze on an old doughnut. While it has been in its share of wet environments it has been quite a while since it got near anything wet. While I am not 100% sure it is fungus I am pretty convinced it is which leads me to one question...
What to do with the rest of my bag? Do I need to sterilize the bag so it doesn't spread? I live in sunny (freezing at 18F) southern california so humidity isn't an issue but I don't want my other lenses picking it up. Same to my bodies. Am I overreacting or is it right that I am alarmed. Iv'e pulled everything from my bag in hopes it hasn't already been effected.
“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” - Bresson
