Item Description
The lens is in good working condition, sharp and a joy to use. It has two pinsize marks on the front element as well as a small scratch (near the outside of the front element). On the very corner of one of the inner elements is a speck of what might be fungus? Also there are some dust specks in the lens. If it is fungus, it could be killed with a UV light (not sure where this came from as this is not usually a problem in Colorado).
I added a shot taken at 200mm 2.8 of a birdfeeder and one taken at f19 of the sky.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Would it be possible for you to take a picture of the "fungus" spot and post it?

Just noticed another tiny fungus spot. The two spots are about 1mm in diameter and on an inside element. If somebody wants the set for $580 shipped as is, no return let me know (TC alone sells for $250 new) otherwise I'll see if Sigma can clean it.
Here is a pic of one of the spots; they are on the very outside of the glass and pretty hard to spot and even harder to take a picture of.
