Can I check if the lens is supposed to reach full aperture range at all focal lengths? ie if its a 18-55mm lens 3.5-5.6.
Is it supposed to achieve full range of 3.5-5.6 @ all focal length 18-55
18mm at minimum F3.5 and 55mm at minimum F5.6
Base on my understanding.
Meaning at 18mm max aperture opening at f3.5, you want to shoot at f5.6 also can.
For 55mm, max aperture at f5.6, cannot go to f3.5.
just a qn, does the resale value of HK lens and SG lens differ?

Is there any thread on how to check for fungus INSIDE of lens barrel?
Hi, newbie here. Is there such practice for people who bought 2nd hand lens that still has warranty to bring the lens down to the respective brands' service center and request a check on its mechanism, something which can't be detect on the outside...?

hi newbie here, jus a qn in my mine, are there anyway to check the age of the lens for thrid party lens. Thanks
Refer to the price guide :http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=124
Call up store to check on new price. Not much point buying a 2nd hand lens that is almost as expensive as getting from shop.
Search thru the B&S section for history price. Take it witha pince of salt. Some prices might be inflated.
Search the seller past sale thread. To get an idea on how he priced his item and his reputation. If he has been selling the same lens for the longest time, chances are his lens is lemon or his price is unrealistic.
** Good thing CS don't delete the sale thread**
