So I was looking at my Takumar SMC 55mm f/1.8 and noticed there were a bunch of hair like fibers inside. Like a spiderweb. I'm going to assume this is fungus.
so... can the fungus spread outside the lens? i don't really care about saving the lens since i got it for free but i just dont want it to start spreading to my other gear or around the house or on me.
the barrel feels a little loose to (it jiggles) so i'm just worried that there's enough play to allow the fungus to escape out.
