    *age of lens
    *fungus
    *physical condition
    *scratch
    *i will try to shoot on widest and longest zoom (check sharpness)

    Make sure its EF mount not FD mount.

    All EF mount can fit Canon EOS camera.

    one tip for you, if you are buying 2nd hand lens, check the turning zoom, see if the turning is smooth or not. if not then don't buy it.
