    I have a Nikon 20-35 2.8 here that has clean front element but a decent scratch in the rear element. No idea how it got there as I am always careful with rear lens cap.Also aperture ring is s little stiff. I have looked at the images it makes and I can't see anything wrong with them because of the scratch.

    Any idea what it is worth? I am clearing out some of my Nikon stuff but no idea if it's worth fixing before I sell it or just flick it off as-is?

    Thanks!

    I think I can get a new rear element but i think a couple hundred to fix it up, maybe I should just donate it to the FPP...

    Look up KEH, that might give you a ballpark figure.

    Thanks I did that but it doesn't account for the rear element damage
