Re: Oil on my aperture blades?

I had oil on the blades of my 135mm f/2.8 AIs Nikkor. To clean the blades was complex -- I had to take the lens apart and disassemble the shutter mechanism three or four times until I got the aperture tuned correctly.

Compared to what I saw in my 135mm lens, I cannot see any oil in your two photos. I would not return it to the seller.
