Upload & Sell: Off
The 15mm saga continues, even though the lens is working well I decided to have Nikon fix it 100%, they charged $450, it is enough to replace one element instead of cleaning it the best they could. Here is the issue for reference, I sent these pics to Nikon, they always answer correspondence on their support site, Nikon requested photos to evaluate. Taken with 55mm 3.5.

The not so good lens, the 15mm 3.5, this is not seen unless a really bright light is used. This is not and was not caused by fungus, I am an optics trained engineer, this is a factory defect in the coating.
