    I just took delivery of a used Olympus 4/3 Zuiko 50-200 f2.8-3.5 that I bought on Ebay. I works fine and looks new, but when I roll it around or shake it I can hear something loose inside rattling around. I can't see anything inside the lens.

    I'm in Canada, and the vendor is in the US, so returning the lens will be a real pain in the butt. So I'm tempted to just keep it and hope this isn't a serious problem. Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Interesting with topic since i also just had the same lens but it is a trully great copy with everything inside except the marking olympus near the lens filter caused by the ex owner bag material.

    My suggest,try to your local olympus centre or as the alternative, the nearest service centre for checking
