This is why I hate ebay... FA* 80-200 "Good" condition
Posted By: UncleVanya, 07-13-2018, 02:19 PM

Pentax SMC PENTAX-FA* 80-200mm f/2.8 IF & ED Auto Focus Lens | eBay

From the description:

Appearance condition : Good!! 8/10
Optical Condition : There are many fungus in the lens.
Mechanical Function : No problem
Shutter : No problem
Aperture : Clean
Focusing : No problem
The ad of course uses the "good" part not the fungus part to draw you in...

No affiliation with this sale. Just wanted to laugh with others about the "Optimistic ways" of some sellers.

Not only is the sensor shot to hell (literally, by the looks) but the inside of the mount has a big gouge in it. What on earth happened to the poor thing?

This eBay listing may just get the award for the most honest listing!!
Seriously looks like something found in one of the houses on "hoarders" I've been watching lately
