    Hi Chuck-

    I've got an old Panasonic-Leica 14-50/2.8-3.5 lens that seems to have some fungus spots inside. My father purchased the Panasonic L1 with the Pana-Leica lens years and years ago from BH.

    Does BH have a contact person in Panasonic that I can reach out to, in order to get help cleaning the lens? I tried calling Panasonic USA customer service, and I am unable to speak to a live person.

    Or does BH have a list of recommended repair shops?

    I'd appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.

    May be worth posting your concern again in the Panasonic cameras forum (even though it's a lens) and making sure your email settings are set to allow contact from other members.
