Hi Vick, I guess you are not alone. I just had a similar experience. The lens was described great with pictures but actually letter paintings were all smeared. I do not know what happened during transportation but came in like that. The seller of course claims that he did not send one like it. Good thing is that the seller is willing to take it back blaming that I did it and threatening me that he would file it with *Bay.

The lens was described as "EX" with a "slight mark" on the lens. I just re-read the description of the "slight mark" on the lens. The slight mark is a surface gouge that is over 1/8 inch long and is 1/2 inches from the rim - i.e. not close to the edge. And there are additional defects on the lens, particularly that the lens surfaces are full of cleaning marks and there is something loose inside the lens. In fact, it sounds like a lens element is loose. So is that "EX" to you? The auction states "no return". Is there any recourse? ..Vick _______________________________________________ Leica Users Group.
