Re: Sticky focus ring on 17-55 2.8. Any ideas?

For those considering buying a second hand lens with a chance to inspect it,  it is best to check by taking pictures at all zoom settings, a range of focus distances, and at different apertures.

Take a laptop with you, download the images and critically examined then.

With the lens not attached to a body, use the stop down lever on the back of the lens to get maximum aperture and shine a bright light through the lens to check for dust or fungus.
