Does canon/camera shop warranty for lens fungus

hi all there, i brought a 50mm1.8 lens from a camera shop 2month ago.
And i juz realize the lens got fungus inside. As most of time i attach my lens wif my body, so i didnt realize it.
So the question is, will the shop/canon replace a new/clean for me FOC?
How long for lens to fungus? should more time and not in 2 month time rite?

Why not call the shop or Canon to find out? I am curious to know also. Anyway 2 mths is pretty fast for fungus to grow. Where do u keep ur lens? Or mebbe the shop didn't keep the lens properly before it was sold?

I doubt it's covered and IMHO it shouldn't be as it's your fault for not taking care of the lens.

Same if you drop it/get it wet etc it's not covered.

Fungus can easily be avoided.

BTW cleaning fungus is not so simple and is likely to degrade your lens performance as it will remove some of the chemical coatings.

I suggest you call Canon if you kept your lens in a dry cabinet, mostly likely it had fungus when you bought it.

It is possible to grow in 2 months, but very unlikely.
