    So someone locally is selling a 28mm Takumar and was interested in picking it up. However something i see is this one picture is worrying me. It could be a reflection, but then again, it is hard to tell by the pictures. Here is the photo in question.

    If you look in the bottom right (ish) corner, inside the lens there is some kind of anomaly that is worrying me. I think it might be light reflecting but i wanted to ask the forum their opinion on the matter. Is this fungus or haze, or just a reflection. Should i get this lens or pass? Just the shape that this thing i am seeing looks worrying, like its the growth of fungus or something.

    Do you mean the stuff that looks like glue ran down from around the edge of the glass?

    Ya I can't tell what that is. The seller told me it was just a reflection. Now I am not sure

    Looks like a lens separation to me

    i think im gonna pass on this lens. I don't think its worth the risk. It also seems a little cheap for the lens it is.

    You can ask a few more pictures where the reflection is not visibile.
