Item Description
I bought this from a fellow forum member some time back, and it was and is in excellent shape. The only real negative is a very slight wobble in the lens barrel. Perhaps a millimeter at the very end if I had to quantify it. It does not rattle or make itself known otherwise. I haven't seen any weaknesses in this lens (that weren't my fault) and really don't believe this affects the optics. There are no significant marks on the lens body, and the glass is outstanding. I usually shot this wide open as a portrait lens, and it is really special. The lens cap has a few very minor marks on its edge, you can glimpse them in the photos. The box and paperwork are included, and as you can see in the photo the box is worn around the edges. Sorry for that last photo btw, it turned out garbage. I'm shooting my 12-24, 50-135, and 35 f/2 most of the time, and this has just been on the shelf. I'm raising money for other things. The average auction price on these has recently been $430, I'm knocking down the price because of the imperfection of the wobble. I'll gather some sample photos from the lens, if anyone wants to see them just drop me a note. $15 insured shipping is for the lower 48 US states- I will find a quote for you if you live elsewhere. Thanks.

Bump. I think I'm scaring people off by using the phrase "wobble," but I assure you it's not very noticeable (and unnoticeable in the lens' performance.) I will add some sample photos in a bit.

Hilarious. I live in the Quad (staff.) I suggest you buy the lens and leave it in your office.
