Just a couple of snapshots at f1.4 to show it works. One indoor and one outdoor. Would be an ideal buy for a Canadian buyer to take the saving they otherwise can't and minimal postage.

Oh man...

I can't afford it... but I would love to lease it from you for a couple of weeks with an 'option' to buy....

This should go fast...

I hope so...

Also, willing to trade for a FA 77, DA 50-135 or Pentax FA 135mm f2.8, and each one of them will involve me giving more cash with this lens. OR for a Tamron AF 90mm DI Macro 2.8, and I am willing to pay a bit extra for this as well.

Why are you selling it after only one day, and why do you explicitly and boldly state "NO RETURNS"?

Good questions.

After only one day as I know I don't like Manual focus...most of the shots below f2.8 is out of focus.

No returns, as I only have 7 days to to return this and get the money back minus restocking fees. That's why this will be in the market for 2 days, if no interests then I will just send this back and get my money minus restocking fee.

Thanks.

Those sound like completely logical and reasonable answers. Best of luck with your sale!
