Upload & Sell: Off
I honestly can't see how it was misrepresented unfortunately. You should have asked questions regarding things like dust, as every AI/S lens I have has dust, they aren't brand new. Description doesn't say it comes with caps either. I think you just made assumptions without any questions being asked, I can't see how you'd win with an ebay complaint.
It is OK that caps are not included, just bad service, but "perfect glass and barrel" and "smooth focus" it does not have, easily proven by photos and laying hands on it. Language in description is a contract, they did not say "beautiful" or "mint" which are relative terms, "perfect" is perfect, no wear or damage. My lenses of this vintage do not have dust like this one does. The seller accepts returns for 14 days with 20% re-stocking, I already asked them to refund 100%, not 80%, given the inaccurate description. If they agree, then I do not need to file a case. I have found e-bay buyer protection very supportive in the past. That and negative feedback. Worst case I am out $100 and more convinced than ever to see good photos of the item or not buy.
Once I bought a lens with a rub on the glass, the seller did not agree to refund but e-bay refunded me anyway, with only my word for it.
