    the usual...
    shine a torch light through, look for dust and fungus
    turn the focusing ring for smoothness
    check aperture ring against blades to see that it changes.
    check body for damages if it's a new lens.
    mount on camera body
    check that lens can focus accurately from minimal distance to infinity
    take a few shots and check image for problems.
