    Exclamation Leica 90mm Tele-Elmarit Haze?

    Just got a Bargain 90mm Tele-Elmarit from KEH. Everything looked pristine until I put the lens under some direct sunlight and noticed what appears to be some haze. Is this the dreaded tele-elmarit haze that seems to be circulating online?

    It could be call, KEH and maybe sent the lens back.

    Better yet, send it to Don Goldberg and have him CLA it.

    it may be a fungus. CLA may or may not help; depend whether it etched the glass

    If you are in Canada I would suggest you contact Kindermann of Canada. Jerry is very experienced and he has CLA'd a 35Lux for me, but I am not sure if he has retired or not.

    Gerry CLA'd my M7 just a few months ago--AFAIK he is still at it.
