Description
What was that? $180 for a copy of the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7??? Seriously? ...what's the catch?

Okay, yes. There is a catch here. And you can see it in the second picture below:

That's right. Two nicks on the front lens element. I filled them in with a sharpie to prevent flare, which worked quite well.

And before you ask...No, they're not a big deal, even if they look like they do.

You can look through my flickr set for this exact copy of this lens here:

Here's a full size jpeg: https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3747/13696232774_50d457dc4e_o.jpg

Of all the images I've ever take with this lens, the scratches have only visibly affected a single one of them. And that one happens to be a favorite image for many of my friends and family. I've shared this image in a thread here. Nobody ever noticed the imperfection--or if they did, they never said anything about it. See if you can find it:

All that to say is this: For less than $200, you're getting one of the best lenses for the system. Note: I paid $190 for this lens myself in this same condition 2 years ago. It didn't come with caps. You will receive a generic front cap and a Olympus rear cap (it's just what I have...) with the lens.

Don't believe me about scatches not affecting an image? Give these a read:

With a black magic marker?
