Second opinion on 24-70mm 2.8 II lens

Hey guys,

I purchased a used 24-70mm 2.8L II from an online retailer and I received it yesterday. I was inspecting the lens today and noticed that on the inner rings behind the front glass, there are what seem to be like cracks and fissures along the entire outer perimeter. I contacted the seller and he assured me that those are seams, and he inspected a new one he has in his store, and the exact same crack-looking things are on that one too.

I would like to hear from owners of this same lens, because I looked at all my other L lenses (8-15mm, 100mm, 24-105mm, 16-35 II, and 100-400 II) do not have these "seams" in that front ring element.

Thanks!
