over 150 views and not even a comment well might have overguessed the value of a FF fast wide lens. will lower the price down to $425.00

dont know my guess is that the price may be the factor but not letting a relatively rare lens go for fireside prices either. will leave it up a little longer and if no bites will keep the lens

Only Greeks like this lens?
If I wasn't short of cash this period that lens would be mine now.

Keep it... ( or I'll bye it in a few months. :-) )

I actually did consider it but I need to fill out the long end of my collection first. I've got a 24mm and thought that I would probably want to get sub-20mm if I stuck with a prime.

Great lens though!

Not a lack of interest, more like a lack of money. I think your latest price is great, and if my financial situation were better I would buy it. The frickin crisis isn't helping either!

This lens is the next AF prime I need to buy. Then I need an AF 135mm f/2.8 and my AF prime lineup is complete.

I'm sure you'll have no problems selling it on eBay. Good luck!

I might note you gave it only three days. Some of us check the forum all the time but others might only drop by less often, especially over a weekend.

I may have agreed with you if there were not over 550 views in those three days

Good luck in your Fleabay sale! Putting a reserve price on it was a good idea. I've got it on my watch list--not to buy it, but to see how well you do.

For anybody else who's interested, here's the direct link:
