    need opinion on lens scratches on canon lens I plan to buy

    dealer I have deep trust sent me this pic of front scratches on canon 70 200 2.8 v1 lens.
    worth shooting on spec? I really don't think these dings will make much difference! (but gets me a fabulous price)

    any idea best way to test if a front element is affecting pics? I assume stop all the way down? sorry if a dumb question. just never came up before in my experience.

    thanks,
    Eric
