If you had read and digested my previous posts, by now you would know that the buyer by "cheap copy" did not mean a fake made to look like.. but a copy in the same way as people say " my copy isn't as sharp as..." ort whatever.

I'm not so sure if I agree with your interpretation. If the buyer was complaining about the quality of the lens, he probably would have called it a "defective copy" and not a "cheap copy/"

The term "cheap copy" is most often used to describe shoddily made counterfeits.

For example...

  • a $20 Rolex is a "cheap copy"
  • a $1,000 Rolex is a "counterfeit, but a good one."
  • a broken watch is a "defective copy"

Warning - you've expressed an opinion on this subject that's similar to mine. The opinion police don't take kindly to that sort of thing, so expect consequences.
