Upload & Sell: Off
To clarify, this is the email that I sent him:
It appears that FedEx Ground is faster than UPS Ground as I already got your package. Thank you.
Anyway, the lens is in stated condition and works fine after a quick test, except one thing though. There are some sort of marks on the front and rear elements that wonít go away after cleaning. I assume that you probably missed that because itís not that easily noticeable unless you make the surface a little foggy. I was able to notice it right away because the lens was kinda cold when it got here. Note here that this sort of issue worries me quite a bit because, if the marks did some sort of alteration to the coating, it could reflect the light differently.
Whatís your take on this?
If itís alright with you, my plan is Iím going to buy a residual oil remover like this one (which will cost me about $12-$14 after shipping):
And Iíll try to clean it. But my question to you is, if the marks are still there after I try with the fluid, you would honor the return? If so, since itís a trade, how would you like to do this?
Thank you and Iíll be looking forward to hearing back from you.
P.S. I didnít think about this before committing with the trade because I assumed that the lens would be in perfect shape, except the minor blemish that you mentioned before. I have to make the glass a little foggy before taking all photos. The last one is the rear element.
He didn't reply to my email, but sent text messages instead. And the conversation went like in the pictures.
Basically, my plan was to use ROR to remove the strains. But I wanted to make sure that he was aware of what I planned before I proceed. Of course, I needed to make sure that he would take it back if they wouldn't come off.
If you guys find that I was out of the line, please let me know. Maybe I wasn't aware of it. Anyhow, just because someone thinks that the smears should have no effect on image quality, it should automatically mean I should be okay with it, shouldn't it?
