botw,

Your concerns are definitely justified. That's definitely not in "immaculate" condition. It may clean off fine, but if it doesn't, I'd definitely negotiate a return with the seller.

I agree. If I was told "immaculate" and got that. I would not be happy. If it comes off, and you decide to keep it, I'd still email the seller and let them know.

More than likely its something that will clean, but you will have to weigh if its worth that or not. I'd contact the seller and get his input into what he would like done.

Pretty much agree with bps, but I'd give the seller a heads up first prior to cleaning it.

My lenses look like this all the time, A day out shooting in the rain or humidity and they look far worse, I clean them use them clean them, thats the way it works.

No kidding. I wouldn't even think twice about it. I agree the seller should have cleaned it before shipping based on his description, but really, that is like a non-issue there.


If you must know...

You know, immaculate is a thing of the past.
I say if you love it and you can leave with it, then you are a lucky guy :p

Oh, and in case of lenses you may also be able to clean it... let us know.

It looks like the person who sold you the lens just took it out for a final spin and then wrap it and ship it. The suggestion to contact the seller is great. Hope that was just a honest mistake.
If the person play vague, you should post from whom and where you got this lens to warn everyone.

I'd clean, use, and look at the images critically on the computer. If it passes, keep it and put that lens to work.

I think those look like tiny dry water droplets on the lens.

If I were you, I would just wipe it and move on. If it's on the inside - or if it doesn't come off, I would definitely contact the seller and talk about a return.

give it a good clean, and make sure, it's not fngus under the glass.

I agree, the seller should've done a better job cleaning it before selling it
