Used lens in very good optical and cosmetic condition. The exterior is in excellent condition, with only the slightest signs of use.
The glass is in perfect condition, with no scratches or marks.
While there is always some level of dust inside any used lens, this is a very clean lens, with very limited internal dust.
The focusing and zoom rings turn smoothly and with no play. Auto-focus works perfectly.
This lens has a minor problem with manual focus which is extremely common with all f/4 versions of this lens. We see it to some extent in at least 50% of lenses. If the lens is inclined towards the vertical, the focusing ring turns normally but the focus can only be moved towards closer distances with some difficulty. The problem stems from a lack of friction between the outer focusing ring and the internal mechanisms. When the focusing lens group must rise against gravity, it struggles to get enough purchase.
Auto focus is no way impacted by this problem, regardless of the lens' orientation. The part of the mechanism which lacks sufficient friction is located between the AF motor and the external focusing ring, and not between the AF motor and the lens group. In addition, manual focusing works perfectly until the lens is angled greater than about 45°.
Sold with both caps, the lens hood, the soft pouch, a protective filter (in very good condition), a Phottix tripod collar, and the original packaging.
A very good example of this versatile, lightweight, and high performance lens.
