50mm Series E Fungus

So I got some more glass. Yes, I am addicted. But this was the last batch of glass I was buying. Anyway, it was cheap, with shipping, for three lenses, an old Vivitar flash (283 Thyristor), manuals, filters (for flash), some sort of metal diffuser thing...

 

Moving on....Two of the lenses have fungus in them. Which the guy did not mention, although he did not quite know much about photography (from what we talked about). I still think I got a pretty good deal for ~$100 shipped.

 

In this picture you can kinda see the fungus. But on this Series E 50mm, it seems to be on the back of the front element, and the front of the rear. I can see other spots of it inside, but I am not sure which elements they are on.

 

Tested them both, and they work fine, the fungus does not affect image quality much, if at all, on my D50.

 

I do, however, want them CLA'd nonetheless.
