Our Reference: VNZFQ Price: €2,250.00
Used lens in excellent optical and cosmetic condition, but with some very minor mould which should be noted. The exterior is in impeccable condition, with virtually no signs of use.
The front and rear lenses are in excellent condition. There is a small amount of internal dust, as can always be found to a greater or lesser extent in a used lens. But this remains a very clean lens.
There is mould which is just beginning to develop in one of the lens elements. Specifically, it is in the focus group, and there are two of very similar size (one is shown in the photos), alongside the hole in the ring which facilitates the mouvement of the lens group. The mould has developped only very slightly on the glass, perhaps 2 to 3 millimetres from the edge of the lens element. If the lens is properly stored in dry conditions when not in use, there is no reason to worry about the useful life expectancy of the lens.
The photo showing the mould was taken with a 45MP camera and a 180mm macro lens, and is reproduced here in its original resolution. The mould is frankly hard to see if you are not in the habit of spotting these things.
The focusing ring turns smoothly and with no play. Auto-focus and stabilisation work perfectly.
The lens is sold with the hood, both caps, a strap, and the flight case with key.
A lens in this condition is not necessarily everybody's cup of tea. However, if you are prepared to ensure proper storage, this lens is quite the bargain, as it is otherwise in impeccable condition.
