Rokkor 58mm f/1.2

Aperture wide open with a flashlight shining into the front element. I see about 4 fuzzy-areas with a more dense center spot. Not sure what it is. Doesn't look like most of the fungus pictures I've seen...

If that's a new purchase with that used label attached to it...I'd return it. I see what also looks like slight circular etching from perhaps cleaning?

Fungus, as well as a previous, not entirely successful attempt to clean some that was there before.

Ditto. Return if possible, asap.

In summation, we of FM don't want to associate with you anymore, as you are probably infected with spores yourself. :P

It screwed Cobra Commander in Cobra-La, and it could happen to YOU!

Thanks guys. Just got the 58mm f/1.2 from a certain NY-based camera store. Along with a Rokkor 28mm f/2 with a lazy aperture and a FDn 28mm f/2 with a terrible case of the bubbles. Not too impressed with their lens evaluations.

At least they have a good return policy.

While I have your attention - what's your opinion on this Canon FD lens?

Are those all on the edges? It looks like water damage.

It doesn't look like it's on the glass - but on the plastic/metal internals.

"Schneideritis" the black color is defective.
Old Schneider Kreuznach lenses have this sometimes.

Yep, have had to deal with the white dots, too. Removing the lens elements and repainting the edges helps. It's quite a hassle, though. Wouldn't do it again.
It may also affect plastic parts in certain lenses, e.g. Mamiya glass. The white dots may occur when certain softening constituents volatilize.
