Copy / Paste from eBay: Optisch: minimale Farbabreibungen am Fokusring

What does it mean?

farb means colour
ab should have the same meaning as in Latin, so "away"
I would guess it may mean something like "minimal colour loss".

Well, I don't know if it's correct! It's just my guess.

"Optisch" is most probably used in the sense of "cosmetical" and does not refer to the optical performance.

"Farbabreibungen" are attritions of the colour, some finish is missing.

So, I'm pretty sure Orio is right, this lens shows some minimal colour loss, at least that is how I would understand it, as a native speaker.

Which shows that the lens was well-loved Smile
