Scratched rear element - 20-35/2.8
Feb 13, 2007


I have the opportunity to buy a 20-35 with a scratched rear element for $250. The scratch is pretty siginificant, but the seller (a local photog) will let me take it home to try it out and pixel-peep to see if IQ is impacted before I buy it. He says it is not, but it's a fairly serious scratch, not a just a little nick.

From reading some previous posts in this forum, I understand that rear element scratches can have significant IQ impacts and are costly to repair. Should I not waste him time or mine and move on, or could this be a wise lens investment?
