I am happy to report my "first batch" copy is performing perfect! 5,000 captures an no variation noticed on the autofocus.  ;D

Wanted to report back that the seller worked with me to accept the lens back and issue a refund.  What a relief!!! Glad Ebay has great customer support and buyer protection otherwise I am not sure I would have succeeded in getting my money back.

Now it's time to save a little more and just buy a brand new 300 2.8 II

Thanks for all of the information and opinions!

Thanks for all of the replies. I would considered the price paid to be an average deal so my epxectation was that there would be full disclosure if it was anything less than the "advertised condition of perfect". This will soon be in the hands of the ebay resolution team unless the seller agrees to a refund.  The seller has suggested that I send to CPS but my point is, that I purchased a lens that was said to be perfect. Therefore, I should not be having to deal with this. I have a hard time beleiving that a professional photag would not have recognized this when selling a high dollar item.

Lesson leanred ::) Experience shared with my CR buddies  :)

I just picked this lens up second hand where the seller claimed the lens to be in perfect condition and made no mention of the issue.  Otherwise the lens is mechanically and cosmetically in great shape. Benefit of the doubt would say that he was unaware of the issue but he does photography for a living.

Your thoughts on whether this is fungus or a lot of dust? It's on the inside side of the 1st two elements all the way around the perimeter of the glass covering the outer edges of the glass (3/4 of an inch band all the way around).

Thanks for your comments!

I have several months on both the X-Pro1 and X100s both of which are very impressive. OOC jpegs are truly amazing.  I have decided to keep both for day-to-day photog when lighting fast AF is not necessary and I need to travel light.

For action and sporting events I will continue to depend on the 1 DX.

BTW...the Fuji equipment replaced my 5DIII with no regrets. The only downside is that I am invested in two lens sets for different cameras

It's a great camera. I have been thoroughly impressed with OOC jpegs.
