Hello, I came across a f4 70-200mm lens on craiglist for 400, the only downside is there is a scratch on the front element. Is there a way this can be fixed?
The owner said its been on there for quite awhile and showed me sample pics and it showed there is no IQ loss from it.

I'm considering buying it, but would like to know whether or not the front element can be fixed, or i'm better off waiting for another good deal.\

Thanks,
Brandon

Ask for a sample image file taken of the sky at f/22 & 70mm & with the EXIF intact.
If it were my lens, I wouldn't worry about it, but if I were buying it, I'd expect a substantial discount off the $400-$500 used ones go for.
