How much of a chance do you take buying a used lens?

I have bought almost all of my lenses in used condition from eBay & Gumtree.

Sellers that understand Cameras and Lenses tend to be ultra conservative in their descriptions typically saying there is dust in the lens, and cleaning marks (even if there isn't) and exaggerating insignificant issues.


Sellers that don't understand don't see things like Haze & Fungus and don't do too much checking, if the external appearance looks good.


I price lenses on the worst case scenario, and clean and repair them if required.


If you are looking at 3rd party lenses (Sigma, Tamron etc) there is some interesting data here:
