It says a few marks on the sun shield, does that mean the coating?

I've often seen lens hoods referred to as sun shields/sun covers.

I'm pretty sure "sun shield" is lens hood.
The silver paint on the FA*s is prone to scratches/chipping.

Better to ask before you purchase, just in case.

It was a buy it now for like 750 and they took a best offer of 580... whoever bought it needs to clean it and sell it to me for the same price. LOL.

The fact that it was 40 minutes away may have played into us picking this lens up.

Good for you! I just picked up a 55mm f1.4 and the Sigma 100-300 f4 so I too am a happy camper.

I think this is a no-thinking-buy-it-now price.
Good job, Clinton
