OPTICS: *Some brand new lenses may occasionally have a slight amount of micro dust visible inside the lens elements. This is a result of the manufacturing process and will not affect image quality or resolution. As a result, previously owned lenses like this one will generally exhibit the same consistence. Also, sometimes, some micro dust can be attracted to the glass surface, and it can be blown away.

*Scratch on the Glass of a lens: You can feel when you gently run a fingernail across it. A scratch mark if it is deep enough may affect image quality.
*Hairline/cleaning marks on the Glass of a lens: It is only on the coating and cannot be felt. They will not refract light and will not affect any image quality.
