Have you checked that the serial n is the one of the lens you had ?

The OP looks to have sold the lens now for parts .

The circular scratch to the rear element is now clear how it appeared .

The mount and baffle were removed , and in doing so the ribbon cable was severed ( that's good , innit !) .

Then it looks like some numpty has used a rubber tool to try and unscrew the rear element , but their must have been a bit if grit/sand etc present as that has caused the scratch .

They'll have tried this to get to the aperture to clean it , but failed and scrapped the lens at the same time .

Ba**tards .

Which of course doesn't exclude a lens swap .

So that concludes that one !
