    hey all-

    I sold the K-1000 on ebay, and appreciate everyones input on a recent post.
    now it is off to the buyer.

    I do have a question-what is lens fungus? I've never heard of such a thing
    and also asked a retired pro photog; he hasn't even heard of "lense fungus"
    and has been in a photog for the last 40 years. Enough said. My friend said
    I was lucky to get what I got on ebay, with everything going digital.

    My lenses-you could see clearly thru them when I snapped on the lense, but
    looking thru the lense was a little tricky with bi-foculs....LOL!

    Any input welcome!

    ps: I had a photo made this morning with local celeb, from my
    cybershot-photo turned out nice!

    Thanks for the input Rusty. At least there's some sensible people in here
    rather than the trolls or eighth graders!

    The Camera/lenses I sold was closet kept, in a case-tightly shut. Our
    environment here is dry in the winter, but humid in the summer. The camera
    was also kept in a even tempered home.

    I popped the lenses on one last time, saw no evidence of what you are
    talking about (the snowflake pattern), although as mentioned-bifoculs was a
    little more difficult to read the lense. I could see the lens gage to the
    right plain as day.

    Again, appreciate the input-

    Hey gang-

    Thanks for the info on the slides. I relay the info to him as he was a slide
    guru back in the 70's.

    I told him about the gadget that you can get to transfer slides into jpg
    format; that would be the way to go today!
