So I got an old lens on eBay.  It was advertised as 'clean and clear'.  But when I received it, look what I found:

Disgusting fungus.  Just looking at it makes my skin crawl.  I don't dare get it anywhere close to my cameras or other lenses.  Hopefully I can get this lens returned without issues.

Note: I can only see the fungus at certain angles.  To get a photo of the fungus, I had to light the lens with direct flash.  Here is a shot where the fungus is not at all apparent. Caveat emptor.
