Buy used gear from Adaroma

I found a used lens on Adaroma for nearly 50% of the new retail price. the lens is listed on Condition G. G (good) is stated as "barrel appears to have been used heavily, showing multiple dings, scrapes/scratches, heavy brassing. Lens glass may have fungus, excessive dust, and/or scratches that can affect picture quality."

The thing that worries me is the "multiple dings" statement. I am looking for this lens to be an adventure and outdoors lens so Im not worried about how it looks as long as it functions correctly throughout its zoom and focus range.

would this be of concern to you?


I just reread the add and it says:

  • ITEM NOTE: Severe internal fungus; image quality may be affected.

Is that too risky, how does one get rid of the fungus?
