    Thanks for the input everyone including Helen. I went ahead and ordered the lens, it was such a good deal I didn't want to risk losing it. I would probably be perfectly happy with a E or E+ so the demo rating is a nice bonus.

    The lens has arrived and it is MINT! In a Leica Leather lens case, and not only that it unexpectedly has a mint Leica E60 UVa filter on it, these are not cheap so what a great bonus. This has definitely made my day. Now just waiting for my ebay'd R8 body to show up and I'm in business

    What's are the spec's on the lens, size, glad it worked out, it didn't take that long either.

    And so the restaurant critic walked in and was immediately seated at the best table in the house. Perusing the menu, he nibbled on an amuse bouche of periwinkles bathed in truffle oil.

    He ordered a light Liebfraumilch and was presented with one of Moselle's finest special bottlings, it redolent floral aroma filling his nose and tickling his palate.

    Meanwhile, the nine-to-five day worker on rare splurge with his wife was served a basket of six day old moldy baguette slices.

    He ordered a California Pinot Grigio and was "rewarded" with some white plonk from Carneros valley - it's acidity matching the aridity of such a desert terroir.

    Helen I bought two lenses from your company, one enlarging lens and one camera lens and they are working out very nice.

    Adorama Used Equipment Ratings

    I purchased a used Fuji G690 with 100mm 3.5 lens directly from the company's website. The camera/lens was described as E-, which, according to Adorama's published condition scale, states specifically " no brassing". This camera arrived with significant brassing and the focusing ring on the lens was usuably stiff and in need of a CLA. To Adorama's credit, they accepted the return and refunded the purchase price + shipping. This week, I notice that Adorama is selling the exact same item on Ebay. It is still condition rated as E-. I have bought new equipment and accessories from Adorama and am quite pleased with their prices and services and will continue to buy from them . Regarding used equipment, however, buyer be very aware!
