Pentax 24-35mm f3.5 lens

I bought this lens last week. I am quite pleased with the images it produces.
When I checked the lens, it has lots of dirt specks and multiple moisture like clear rounds stuff.
I paid 70 and they are not going to reduce the price while they will accept return.
Anyone used this lens and would it be worth to keep it?
Thanks for your advice.

This must be the M series lens, right?

To my knowledge it's well-regarded for a zoom of the era but I haven't used one or even seen any for sale. It's a lens I wouldn't mind trying out and 70 sounds like a good deal if it's working well but maybe yours has some problems, possibly fungus. If you post some images of what you see inside then maybe the folks can give you an idea of what you're looking at.

It's a good lens and I used one for quite a while on the Pentax ME Super and MX. If in doubt, perhaps a return is the way forward?
Best regards, John
