Nice find! Seems weird that he rates it as exc++ with all that wear on the barrel, I'd say optical exc+ cosmetic good.

Also, he contradicts himself:
  • Item is guaranteed to be as described - I take a lot of time to accurately describe my items for sale - if it isn't as described you can return it.

That's not even close to ex++ or whatever he is rating it. While it's alright if the barrel is in average condition, having a scratch on the front element of the lens puts it in the bargain bin to me.

I dont think this lens is worth $1800 in this condition. The scratch on the front element would make me nervous.

That and all the dust that you can see in the 4th image.

Don't know how you can rate something ex++ when the outer coating is scratched like this.
