Unless it's interfering with your ability to focus, it's best to leave the viewscreen alone. Fungus usually looks like white fuzz.

The R3's screen is not user-removable. As advised, if you can live with it, do so. The R3 is not economical to service.

Hello Brooke. The R3 LEITZ universal focusing screen installed in the factory is not user interchageable as in later R models.

Unless your R3 needed a comprehensive service I would not have the technician simply remove and clean the screen. Regards.
