This is the internet - here could be anywhere and where here is might make a difference but from your profile it is NZ so

Personally I would write to the buyer that this was a private sale with no warranty, and in an "as is" condition.  The lens was in pristine (or whatever) condition when it was despatched.  It is not readily possible to ascertain how the lens has treated the lens in the time that you have it and you have declined my offer to have Canon inspect it.  I regret that in these circumstances and with the further passage of time I am not prepared to offer a refund nor enter in any further discussion with you.

Or words to this effect - talking to a lawyer is going to cost - wait for the buyer to make the first move .

Edit: IANAL
