This is the next to latest model 250mm lens in good condition. The shutter is strong and accurate at all speeds and the mechanical action is smooth.
There are a few very small marks on the front element but I can only see them with a flashlight, they will not affect your image quality on a lens this long. Otherwise the glass is clean with no haze or fungus. There is a small break in the bottom plastic of the focusing ring (see photos) but the ring is sturdy, I cannot get the break to flex. It does not affect the function of the focusing ring, it is only cosmetic.
