"Used only once..in flawless, mint condition." Yeah, right!

Here's the description on E-Bay:


Used only once.

Front lens cap is missing (rear lens cap is included) but otherwise in flawless, mint condition. Comes with original box, original owners manual, original Fuji protective bag and original Fuji rear lens cap.


And here is the filthy lens, complete with some unknown gummy-sticky white substance with dust and grime embedded in 50% of the focus ring grooves:

White stuff was sticky and wouldn't wipe off.

I added the JJC hood to replace the missing hood (which was disclosed) and upon testing said lens, it appears to work properly..albeit somewhat soft at f2 (understandable) but fine from f2.8 up to f11- which is not an issue.

Two things I hate is surprises.. and liars when selling on e-bay, etc.

Was I wrong in leaving negative feedback for the seller???
