You are right, I just dug out the receipt and I actually paid $355. I guess my memory is off a bit.

The coating on the outer edge of the inner element on the front group has a scuff like the aperture blades touched the glass. It's covered up by the time the lens is closed down to f/11. I think this scared most buyers away. Even wide open I see no issues in the few images I have shot this way. But I almost always stop down to f/11 or more, so I'm very happy with the deal.
