just wondering how much you guys know about scratches and big dust specs in lenses....
85 f1.4- lots of little scratches and one spec that looks like it goes right to the glass just off the middle of the lens. back element is perfectly fine.
hasselblad zeiss 80 f1.8 -some minor cleaning marks on the front element. everything else is fine.
50 f1.4- has a big nasty (looks like a metal shaving) inside the lens. nothing on front or rear element.
are these issues to be concerned with? i paid $350cad for the 50 and 85, so i'd rather not return them if the issues are minimal. i knew it was too good to be true! i asked him in person when i bought them if i'd be disappointed and he said it shouldn't matter, but if i'm disappointed i can return them whenever. as for the hasselblad, i'm pretty much stuck with it.
some background info might help -i shoot black and white film mostly (but am getting into more colour) and blow up my pics from 8x10 to 20x20 (larger once i get the capabilities). i think this might be relevant.
thanks for your replies!...jordan.
