How much for lens cleaning?
I wonder how much is the price range for cleaning?
I watched a YouTube video and it looks very tricky to do by myself.

There are about 4 to 5 spots only.

It's not that tricky at all to DIY. You just need to order one of these: https://www.amazon.ca/Neewer-Profession ... B00J5F6ZI2

I could do with the screwdrivers and the dual tip wrench.zaporozhets wrote: ↑ It's not that tricky at all to DIY. You just need to order one of these: https://www.amazon.ca/Neewer-Profession ... B00J5F6ZI2
and the rest of tools, such as heat guns and screwdrivers can be bought from any hardware store. Couple hours and you are done. You'll probably have to pay $200 - $300 for someone to do it for you.
Have faith in your self! you can do it. Post your results here

The key is how many elements and which elements have the mold. If it's the front element, then it's going to be easy to get to.

Don't worry about glue. If it dries out and doesn't stick, you can use rubber glue that cyclists use for patching tires. And, if you watch the repair video carefully, you'll see that electronic ribbon cables don't just pop out by themselves. Take your time and follow the video and you should be fine. Approach it like a learning experience, if you can fix this lens, then you can fix more lenses in the future if needed and in unlikely scenario that you fail, you gained experience, so you loss is just a price of education.

You need to clean thoroughly even though it is only visible on the front element. Mold.. travels with the air.
