The overall condition is good, no dings or dents on the body, glass has no scratches, haze or fungus, but there're some fine cleaning marks on the front and rear elements.
Aperture blades has some tiny sign of oil, but it works fine, snappy and clicks on each stop.
Focus is really smooth without any hesitation.
