The lens you show is very real, not a fake at all (as others also stated). It is in fact a very good lens!

It is the first version of the Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 APO. There is a second version, the Minolta AF 80-200mm F2.8 HS APO G, that focuses much faster (hence the HS = High Speed), is white instead of black and much more known to people.

Maybe the buyer thinks it is a fake due to the fact he expected the second version, and does not know about the first version at all.

What baffles me if the buyer was genuine , is being able to confuse the two .

Surly the seller put up a picture of it in the sales listing  , wherever it was listed .

You'll be hard pressed to be able to confuse the two !
