    Tom- just for some perspective on marks in the glass, if you dig through the archives here, a few years ago Jim Galli started a thread about a Cooke portrait lens he bought. It was a rare lens, worth multiple thousands of dollars in good condition. This example looked like someone had hit the front element with a sledgehammer. Literally, a forking crack the whole way across the front element. He shot it for giggles, and other than some contrast loss, it produced good images. So a little nick in the rear element won't do jack to an image.

    hi tom

    no need to bully sellers .. if a seller says no returns, just contact paypal because THEY maintain there is a 45day return policy.
    just call them whatever ... they will mediate a return. and they will also allow you to get shipping both ways returned to you.

    good luck with your lens!

    Take a look at my post to this thread around four from the bottom.

    Oh, well--it's done now. Just as well. Soon as I see a refund, then the urologist can get it. For me, everything is in that context. This Bausch and Lomb on the old Betax shutter isn't so bad. More than what I had 2 weeks ago. You guys are AOK. Thanks.
