Let me guess, DA18-55/3.5-5.6 AL WR. DA55-300/4-5.8?
1 is correct. but anyway, I think you got the idea. most of the lenses I got are in good condition and have only have minor issues that are easily negligible.

cosmetic wear and slight body scratches in some lenses, especially the metal barreled lenses due to use.

slight small negligible scratch on the front element on 2-3 lenses that don't affect IQ.

and lubrication of the aperture bearings of 1 lens.

oil on the blades (normal for russian lenses, not really an issue).

the only real concern that I had was fungus on one lens, although it's not really the main lens but rather an adapter lens for the main lens. although I got it fixed and still cheap if I were to buy or find a rare copy.

Well coming from a guy who's K200d broke right after the 1 year warranty ended, Im not so keen on the idea of used bodies :ugh:
ouch, sorry to hear that. i see that you put your gear into good use in the wilds. maybe a little more utilized than someone who stashed it away and only took family photos. :-)
