Hi fellow Nikonians,
I have been offered a fine looking Nikkor 28mm F2.8 AIS lens with a very,very minor scratch of about half a centimeter on the front element, near the edge.
I wonder if anyone here has the same type of imperfection on such a lens, or any medium wide angle? Will it affect picture quality in terms of flare or any visibly obvious sign on a print or slide? Your opinions are most welcome, and thank you in advance.
