Mike, that looks very good.
Now, about that scratched drop-in filter, that can be easily replaced.
Yet, I think that the filter condition warrantied a specific disclosure.....perhepas Helen/Adorama can do something about that ?
Adorama carries the holder.
The filter is important for proper AF calibration, and it also keeps the dust out of the rear element cavity.....therefore, it shouldn't be removed and it has to be optically clear.
How does the MF feel.....is it snug enough, i.e., it doesn't clatter ?
When you are spinning the MF ring in either direction, do you hear any scraping or grating noise ?

The lens is solid and doesn't feel loose between the front and back. The focus doesn't clatter and seems responsive at the different speeds. It makes a noise when focusing, but it sounds very quiet and "normal" to me.
Thanks for explaining the drop in filter. I didn't realize the glass stays in all the time and the metal clip is meant to hold other gelatin filters on top of the glass. I was thinking the assembly was a "filter holder" and I just needed a new glass disk. I was mistaken. I am a supertele noob I guess.
