Question about Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens..... What would you do?
1

In December I bought a used Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 ZA Lens. It was describes as "absolutely mint". The attached photo is one of the photo the seller posted. If you notice there is no front makeup ring which should have the serial number. Being fairly new to Sony and to this lens I did not know that the ring was missing.

It's by chance that I saw an article on Lens Rental that details the tear down of the lens that I realised that the ring was missing https://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2015/12/sony-fe-35mm-f1-4-za-lens-teardown/

I messaged the seller and he said that he bought the lens new and never sent it in for repairs. Basically he is say that the lens came new without the ring.

My first question is did anyone else ever got a new lens without the ring? My second question is what would you do in my position?

This photo below is from Lens Rental showing the ring that is missing.
