Today i just went to a CS-listed Lucky Plaza shop to get my lens. won't mention names.
(Nikon 24-70 which is $2.7k so of course i am detailed on checking it)
That guy was friendly on the phone and also when we met.
Then he showed me the first set.
Opened the aperture under flourescent tube there were so many spots of fungus/mould
then he said nevermind, he will send back to Nikon and showed me second set.
Fungus/mould again. This time that fellow patience ran thin and said he only has one last set. Fungus/mould again! And he said, "the way you check lens i dont think any lens can satisfy you"
And I said, so are bringing these lens back to change. I can come back to you next week.
He said "No, I am going to sell it"
Damn isn't he contradicting himself when he said he will send the first set back to Nikon?
End up i bought from somewhere else.
MOULDY LENS and that fellow continues to sell it, fellow CS buddies, please be very careful when dealing there. I think there is problem with his lens storage.
You have been warned.
