There is some external paint loss on the body and glass has many tiny scratches (what people refer to as cleaning marks) but none of them are deeper than the coating. If you ran your fingernail acroos, you would not feel them at all. I never noticed any softness or other issues at any time. Compared to the other one I have, which is in almost mint condition, I honestly could not see a difference in the images they produce.I never had any issues and recently completed a commercial for the Wisconsin Humane Society. Except for the bulb shots, the entire commercial was shot with this lens. It is such a luxury not needing a diopter. It makes the whole setup so compact, not to mention much lighter! The 1.5x squeeze gives you a fantastic aspect ratio without having to chop the sides off on 16:9 sensors.
