Hello, all

Anyone savvy on those tiny little white dots that can appear on a lens' optical coating?
I bought a used manual 16x lens off of Ebay from a private party. The dots are small, real small, barely larger than the tip of a pin and there are two of them.
My question is does it mean that there is something faulty with the coating and this trend will continue? Will the existing dots grow larger?
I e-mailed the seller just a few minute ago but wanted to see what anyone here might have to say.
:huh:

could be fungus starting to grow. Seen that before in a lens that hit moisture in the past.

Yea,

That's from the previous owner. It's not inherent to the lens. I got my 14X manual from B&H. I hated paying the price but it sure beat getting hoodwinked on Ebay.

I've gotten phenominal deals from Ebay. But, I've also gotten jipped. Caveat Emptor.
