35mm f/2 and a couple of test shots this morning. Started in total darkness at 5am outside a pub (ISO 3200 f/4 1/8th). The pond image is ISO 3200 f/6.7 1/60th and the other one ISO 1600 f/2.0 1/60th, with with -1 or -2 EV.
I have had similar things happen when you find marks or worse when stuff arrives & it is gut renching when you see it.
The thing is if you buy sight unseen then it is a risk you have to accept imo, I have sent stuff I know is perfectly discribed only to be sent pictures of damage that I know was'nt there with threats & insults that would make a madam blush.
I guess we just risk it because we want that item or that billy bargain & if it goes wrong we have to take a deep breath & carry on.
Oh yeah! Put some paragraphs in I can't hold my breath that long..👍👍🏼👍👍🏼👍👍🏼
