Up for sale is yet another 'bargain' supertele. If you're afraid of some scuffs, dings, and dust, you probably should hit the 'back' button now
If you're looking for a bargain on a perfectly functional and dead-sharp 500mm, then this lens is for you. Autofocus is perfect, IS is perfect, manual focus ring is smooth with no grit that I heard/felt, and all buttons/switches work perfectly. Collar/Preset focus ring may have some very slight 'grittiness' but are smooth and work perfectly. The lens was originally owned by a professional photographer. The front rim has some dings and a couple scuffs. There's a little typical paint wear around the barrel but it's not bad at all, it's mostly under the foot and near the front rim where the hood mounts. The front meniscus glass has a few scratches (one is pretty deep) and there's dust inside. None of these have any effect on anything (Canon quoted me $250 for the glass part on another 500 I had, but it's not worth replacing IMO). To test the scratch effects on images, I took a quick picture directly into sunlight @ f/32 and still didn't see any effect of the scratches (see picture below). I did a micro-adjust of -10 on my 5DII and it's tack sharp at all apertures.
The lens will include:
-Hard Case (Ex+ condition)
-Lens Hood (Ex+ condition)
-Leather Cap (Mint condition)
-Drop-in UV Filter (Ex condition)
-Rear Cap

Asking only $5399 net to me
