    Used or Ab-used?

    I found this listing on eBay and I wonder how could somebody manage to get a lens in such condition. Using it as a hammer, perhaps?

    Missile testing, perhaps?

    Sent by UPS, perhaps!

    Seriously, I have seen many worse!

    Buy an old lens and get creative. It could help with your anger management too.

    It looks a bit like my 110 XL after some nut on a bicycle crashed into my camera/tripod knocking it over, and it of course landed on the lens.

    If it belonged to Uri Geller, the damage was done telepathically.

    A perfect example of why they invented filter rings.

    It probably belonged to some government agency. Years ago, I was in a situation where I was able to buy "government surplus" for a non-profit org. Most of the camera equipment ( which the government paid WAY TO MUCH for) looked like it had been dragged behind a vehicle down a rocky road! Hey, the guy using it didn't pay for it so why should he care?

    To think if the owner had kept a UV filter on it all the time the lens would have probably been just fine and perfect today <sic>
