Just a quick follow up that the buyer gave me a full refund, and let me keep the lens.

I decided to open it up, and take a look. The springs looked like they didn't quite fit, I took them out, and swapped them around, and then loosened the metal bit holding the aperture tension arm in alignment just a tad, and the springs worked great.

Basically whoever had worked on it had tightened it down to far.

With that done I put it all back together and took some quick photos. This was at night though, with crap lighting, so they were good, but not overly sharp.

I will take some shots tomorrow with some real light and see what I get.
