Roll of the dice

  1. "scratches and dings" and they think it's a grain of sand causing a squeek while the camera is cold????? I'm no physicist but I don't think sand changes composition in room temperate, ie the squeek goes "away"?? Sounds like something's been banged and is grating....
    Sounds like this lens has been 'well used' or even 'ab-used'

    Don't get lured into considering this one. The "squeak" isn't from a pebble (tall tale that one), it is a sure sign the AFS ring motor is worn and needs replacement. Costing the gullible buyer at least another $ 500
     
  3. I had no intention of trying to bid on this.

    I am saving my nickles, dimes and quarters for a Beast but still short on the $$.
    Notice he is keeping the filter for the replacement.

    I saw one about a month ago that had been disassembled.
    It looked like the electronics had been ripped out.

    It went for $175.
