At a thousand dollars i would expect decent build quality

I spent about half that and expect a few if any here paid the original full price.

Was the issue of damage just the dust in the lens?  Plenty of videos on the internet about how to remove the front element and clean out the dust.  Yes, it is not weather and dust sealed like an 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens.  It just has the lens elements of a L lens.

He likely just had a ribbon cable break from flexing over 9 years.  Daily use?

Also, it would be likely that the repair service mixed up a damaged lens with this guy's lens.   I don't see any damage.  Sent it back with the wrong repair comment/letter?  I wanted this lens but never pulled the trigger on it.
