Its come to a point where I need to sell my all bar one Nikon lenses after 3 years. I inherited them from a uncle of mine and some have had alot of use, some not so.

However, before I part with them, I want to quality check them before flogging them on ebay as I do not want to screw the buyer with my negligence.

I store them with silica gel packs to keep avoid humidity and mould so i do not think that is the problem.

Any tips and advice would be helpful.

Do you have a Nikon dSLR you can use to take some sample photos with?

I'd put them through their paces, taking photos along the way. Use the autofocus to focus on something close, and then at something far away. Zoom in and out while autofocusing at both nearby and distant subjects. Take shots at different apertures to see if the exposure remains good. If anything doesn't work well, or if a lens makes some noise it shouldn't, I'd take it in for repair.

If you don't have a Nikon camera body you can use to test them, you can always sell them 'AS IS'.
