Cosmetically it is in great condition with the only real flaws being a small crack in the focus distance glass window and a scratch on the built in hood, all caused by the previous owner. I've owned it for a little over 2 years and experienced no problems. The optical glass is perfect, and it is very sharp and focuses fast. It doesn't make any noise. Email me for pictures. My price is firm and already close to half the price of a new one.
