    I found a used Canon FD 135mm SC for a cheap price. But the thing is there's a mold inside the lens. But the seller claims it does not affect the IQ.

    It cost around $90-95USD. Should I get it for the fact that its cheaper and clean it, or should I spend around $135 for another used one which is in perfect condition?

    Here's how the mold in the lens looks like.

    I would spend the extra $40 for the clean one. Peace of mind is priceless.
