Considering a 1991 mark I Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM purchase.

Well, I have an opportunity to purchase that legendary lens at an affordable price (little less that half the current new online price for the mark II).

The seller says that it's in excellent condition with no marks or scuffs whatsoever. However, the lens hood is missing, that piece being sometimes an indicator of the extent of the lens use.

The lens code starts by UF, which points to 1991.

What should I watch for when trying the lens, and also if something goes wrong, like the focus command, should it still be fixable by Canon and at a reasonable price?

Paul
