Hi

I just bought a Canon 50mm 1.8 STM today from Curry's and I have just realised there is a tiny white smudge 'inside' my lens, it's not dust on the front or rear end. It's looks like it's between the glass elements.

What is it and what do I do?

Regards

Hi

I asked a friend to pop my lens into currys for me while I was at work and my mate said they had no issues with replacing it, they recognized it was mold/damp/fungus.

My mate just dropped off the replacement. The lens is super clear with no defects, brill!

Inside the elements?
Take it back.

I've looked online and the only possible is apparently fungus/mold. Pretty bad that if so. Certainly was disappointed went I noticed the defect.

By inside elements I mean between the two glass elements...

Right.
Take it back.

No way would I accept a "new" lens with fungus or a similar internal fault.
