Im told when you enter a Butterfly house your lens gets condensation on the glass, would this damage my new 100mm lens or is there nothing to worry about, hope this isnt a silly question thank you:)

When you go from a cold, dry environment into a hot humid one, you'll get condensation. Best thing to do is to keep your camera in a bag and let it slowly warm up before taking it out. Some people say use ziplock bags, but I've found that using just my crumpler 6 MDH and waiting a few minutes takes care of the problem.

The only butterfly "place" I've visited is the butterfly farm in Penang. Never noticed this any condensation.

When I went to the zoo a couple of months ago we went to a butterfly area and it was really humid, but I never noticed any condensation as well. This may have been attributed to the fact that its summer here and it was already really hot/humid outside. I guess when going from one extreme to another you will notice the condensation.

To answer your question, no, it won't damage your lens.

You will have to wait for the condensation to clear though.

I think the only thing that would damage your camera is if you allow it to condense inside of your camera or lens. If you don't change lenses in there then its not a problem. Moisture in the camera or lens could lead to electronic problems or fungus.

If it's cold outside and very warm and humid inside, you might find that condensation is very slow to evaporate, and, depending on the humidity, might not at all. I would take a good clean lens cloth with you and if you find it hasn't cleared after several minutes indoors, give it a wipe off.
