Tamron 28-75mm "Amazon Renewed" lens

I just got a Tamrom 28-75mm lens from Amazon and I'm a little disappointed. It was sold as a "Certified Refurbished" or "Amazon Renewed." Amazon claimed "Renewed products work and look like new. These pre-owned products have been inspected and tested by Amazon-qualified suppliers. Box and accessories may be generic. All Renewed products come with the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee."

IMO the body does not look "Like New" as the lettering is smeared. There are some lite marks on the body and rings but that doesn't bother me as much as the lettering.

I wanted to get some opinions from people. Would you be disappointed? Am I over reacting? I paid $599 for the lens. I do need to go take some pictures with this lens to see how it preforms. If the lens preforms well, I may just keep it.
