Just bought a $2500 lens, am I OCD or should I go back to exchange it?

Take it back. The original owner returned it for a reason.

I'd willingly pay $2500 for it (only if it were NZ$2500 though...)

does it work. test it. I'd rather have a good optical copy with a couple of nicks than return for a copy that is not as good optically. they do vary.

This. YOu paid for an original factory-packed lens, not for a secondhand reject. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to return it, also I would let the seller know exactly how unappreciative I was of them selling me a used lens at full retail price.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

I'd take it back. If it was just dust, keep it. But nicks are another matter.

If you pay $2500 for that lens, you paid too much. Return it and you can find one in classified forum with better condition for much less.

Im in canada, and to find a seller in the US willing to send to canada is one problem, then if they do, theres the shipping and possible customs/duties charge. So not worth it.

I actually paid $2070 (it was on sale), but theres tax on that, so i paid $2339 exactly

I picked up a 70-200 f2.8 mkII and when I got hit home, I did my unboxing, I noticed a plastic bag was already removed and balled up to the side.

You can stop right there. It's a customer return, and it obviously has been sent off to you without the shop even inspecting and repackaging it.

Which shop?


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

it does work, and thats my main concern, would the next copy be better or worse optically? I haven't been able to really tell as all my shooting with the lens has been inside the house with my "noisy" 7D. But nothing is blurry or shout out loud sharp. Just me i guess.

To return one for another, then return that for the first one would be imbarrasing.
