So do their numeric ratings on used individual lenses reflect the units' cosmetic and mechanical condition, or its optical performance or a combination of both?

. The lenses are the pre-1999 white EF lenses (some of which are still current and relatively popular): the 200/1.8L, 300/2.8L, 300/4L, 300/4L IS, 400/2.8L, 400/5.6L, 500/4.5L, 600/4L, 35-350/3.5-5.6L, 70-200/2.8L,and 100-400/4.5-5.6L IS.
i think she charged it too, as it was not put in the box as i had put it! all is good!
I learned much from this site.
Adobe lists the lens under samyang , but it's all the same
Thanks for the reply...
I should have mentioned I don't have adobe, I"m using Aperture 3...so, either need a plug in for that, or standalone.
Open source would be preferable. I've read that UFRaw would do it...but can't seem to find a version of that for 5D3 and this lens...so, still looking.
I've just started looking at them in Aperture 3 to do a little PP..and they look great so far, exposure was pretty spot on, not much adjustments there. I've not tried to get any programs to adjust the distortion, but from what I'm seeing and what I was shooting..not really seeing any bad distortion, not like if you were shooting a brick wall where it is more apparent.
I recall from the 5D III manual that third party lenses are not able to use as many of the focus points as Canon's. For lenses like this one, whose optical performance and focusing speed seem to be on par with Canon's, is that the only downside?
Have the 5d3 and 35mm 1.4 Sigma and can use all the AF points like my L 2.8 glass can on the camera. All 45 cross and 61 points are usable.
I vote for the Metz Mecablitz 58 AF-2 digital. Works very well, even the custom functions can be set in camera.
Basically it's a 580 clone, with a bit extra. It has a USB port for future firmware upgrades, and a small secondary flash at the front for fills, I like that very much. Oh, and you don't have to study the manual to get it working, the menu is very straight-forward
