Lenses should be stored in a cool, dry place away from shocks or risk of falling.
- Heat can cause the oil to spread on the diaphragm blades of some lenses, requiring a repair
- Damp helps to accelerate the attack of fungus, which means the lens must be quickly removed and either repaired or disposed of, to prevent fungus spreading to other lenses
- All lenses are susceptible to shocks
Any lens which suddenly becomes stiff or loose, or where there is unexpected resistance in the zoom or focusing rings should be checked out by an authorised repairer. Lenses do change with use, but some problems can be fixed early, avoiding more expensive problems later on.
Most lenses attract dust inside the lens over time. This is not necessarily an issue, but can be fixed when the lens is serviced.
