I own a 1983 Minolta 35-105 lens which has a minor case of fungus on what I deem the second element (the first glass behind the outer one)
The fungus seems to be growing, if only very slowly.
As this is my favorite lens, I would like to remove the fungus to prevent further damage. I know that I could dismantle the lens and clean the glass chemically. However, I doubt that I'm capable of doing this, not to mention putting the lens back together.
Is there a way to remove lens fungus without dismantling the lens, or, if not, to kill the fungus so it won't grow any more? (For those who wonder, I was thinking of exposing the lens to rays, heat, cold or anything similar)
(Note that I do not intend to use a professional service to do this)
