Need rating advice - EP condition

I'm still new to Amart, so I really don't want to misstep here, and would appreciate some consensus/advice. I purchased EP that arrived today - great packaging, prompt shipment, good communication throughout. My problem is the condition of the EP - there's a fairly sizable fingerprint/smudge on the lens (see photo). It was advertised as "like new" and only used a handful of times. I understand it can be cleaned, but I'd like to get opinions on how you'd rate if you were in my shoes. If the fingerprint entirely forgivable? Or would you dock a star or two? I emailed the seller to give him a chance to respond of course.

This may have happened when it was packaged and was missed by the seller. He may also have not wanted to touch the coatings.
If it cleans off perfectly, then I would just make a comment about it, but not give a bad rating because of it. Maybe a 4 star for the finger print instead of a 5 star.
Some times I would rather they not clean the EP or lens and let me do it. grin
