I think Peter is a smart feller (I pass on the spoonerism ) but I disagree about the 'accelerated aging' theory, as evidenced by the 'latter' photos.
That puppy has experienced many, many years of sustained use; lots of bag wear, at least a few dings, and probably some more severe events. That doesn't mean that it can't take most excellent photos, but it's definitely not what you signed up for. Also, it appears that the seller had malicous intent. Good luck with this.
Jim, that "accelerated ageing" I thought was only possible, but I do agree with you, perhaps not likely, which then would suggest that the lens Dennis just got may not be the same lens which Phil sold to that feller a year ago.
What can you say? It's all so impersonal. The original seller knows exactly what's up, and the rest of us, including Dennis, are left with just the evidence. Speaking of evidence, it's pretty clear that the original seller is a cad and a fraud. Regardless, Dennis was pooched, and he needs restitution. Between Fred and AmEx, I expect things will work out OK.
