Hi!

My problem is i can see foggy spots in my SONY EX1r lens. My camera is no longer under warranty. Aside from lens replacement, are there any solution to this problem? will the foggy spots fade overtime?

Phone your nearest authorized Sony repair centre and ask them what your options are. Only a technician will be able to advise you on the best (and least expensive) ways to get rid of condensation inside the lens. Short of telling you to point a hair dryer at your camera there isn't much else I can offer.

I already tried pointing a hairdryer on the lens. Really dont know if it works 'coz the fog seems to be in the second layer or in the inner part of the lens.

How can i remove the lens from the camera?

The lens is attached to the inside of the camera body, meaning you have to disassemble the entire camera starting at the back. It takes a Sony technician a good two hours of work just to get to the parts that hold the lens on. Don't try this at home.
