Send it to a repair place.

I tried to clean the fungus out of a zoom lens once... I still miss you, 80-200mm

Everything I've seen says that "lens" is the correct spelling.

A lense is something different. The word Lens is for optics.
http://en.wikipedia....i/Lens_(optics)

Do some research and you'll se that pretty much everyone, including all the manufacurers call them lenses or a lens.


Also, try to use a capital I and a capital letter in a new sentence. Also "...." is not or ever correct and in that sentence it should be replaced by a comma.
If you're gonna be a grammar nazi, at least write perfect.

Yeah we sent it to Nikon, trying to claim that the only way it could get in there was moth eggs when it was manufactured? I really have no clue how the hell it happens... but hopefully Nikon will have the warranty on it cover it.

Not that weird when you consider that many lenses have a huge gap in the back when the zoom is racked out in one direction or the other. The rear element draws back into the lens and leaves an opening you could drive a truck through.
