I stumble on this lens in ebay and having the itch to get it as it is so rare to see the magic drainpipe on sale right now. My concern is that the lens have a front element scratch. I was given the advice that it will cause a loss of contrast in harsh light (which I intended to use it for weekend outdoor shooting). So I would like to get more advice on should I or shouldnt I get this lens?
This is how the scratch looks like :
Looking forward to more input on this decision making
