12_Oct PM @my office saw the post @ Clubsnap , then SMS seller to confim the deal that day night. lazy to go home bring my own Camera. cos i trust the seller (Famous Photographer).
During the transaction, i saw the the UXxxxx code 35L very new outside condition, and seller offer me his Camera to test the 35L initiatively. I was very glad of that ,so i made the payment Easily. I told the seller , cos I trust canon's L lens, i'm only care about the lens code , dont care the lens out look, working condition & UX code is OK for me. i'm not so fussy with the outside condition.
12_Oct night when I home, even havnt test the lens , cos No UV on it. I'm very care with such new lens.
13_Oct after my office , I go buy Vitacon Pro UV, when reach home, put on the lens , test. OMG , when shoot something backlight, there is a reflection (Ghost img). but once i took off the UV , then everyting fine. So i was thinking , maybe the UV problem.
14_Oct when I was home , tried another UV. also got reflection. I was confused, then look into the lens , there was a Bubble (sesame szie). the i text the seller immediately. No response. I try call , also No response.
15_16_17_Oct tried call seller 3days , all off.
18_Oct morning , try my lucky as previous 3days, the phone ring , but no body answer. then text the seller , want to finish this 35L things civilized. But I was surprised with seller's reply. he told me i complained 6days after transaction, too late. he turn-off the phone 4days, now he told me this?
of course , without UV the lens working fine, but the seller should tell me first, the 35L is allergy to UV. its not like scratch or dent which can be manmade , its fiscal exist inside lens.
18_Oct PM , I send the lens to Canon harbourfront for Identification. I'll post here once I got the report.
