Most big dealers generally don't know or care how to inspect lenses.

3 lenses with the same problem? Maybe it's not the lens.

Not the same 3 lenses. first 2 lenses were a 50mm f 2.8 D-FA macro, first one had a mark inside the rear element, the second copy via exchange had cleaning marks in an internal element, and so I got a refund for the 50mm macro and got this one. the 80-200 which was much cheaper and this one ends up having an aperture contact problem, so yes 3 in a row, and that too all in one order, returned thrice now..
