50-135 f2.8 / 70-200 f2.8 / 50-150 f2.8 under $700

Hi guys,

I am chasing any of these constant f2.8 zooms that are 120+mm at the long end. This is for a wedding I'm doing in just over a month, I don't have a telephoto that is fast enough. I have a Sigma 105mm f2.8 which is fantastic but when your subject gets too close you can't pull out and that's a problem.

So yeah I am chasing any of the things in the title (if it's a SIGMA 70-200 it has to be the good one, I think series 1 is the good one?) I am ok with the Tamron one too - $700 is my absolute max, and that would be for a DA or Sigma, as the Tamron is only about $800 new anyway.

Thanks guys.

Hi, thanks but obtaining this kind of lens has become a little less important for me. I am going to try to wait for one of the cropped eqivalents to become $4-600 I think. Thanks.

I have a DA*50-135 in like new condition. Would part with it so I can get a FA 31 ltd. Would need to get $650 to me. Have a 67 mm Polarize r coming any day now for this lens and would sell that for the same as I paid for it if interested. $35 + shipping.

PM me if interested.

P.S. I have the DA*16-50 also if you want a set. $1300 for the two.
