Item Description
Box, hood, caps, nice case, and paperworks are intact. The glass is very clean. Very sharp.

Got it from a respected member (Canada) here early this year. Used it a lot but have taken care of it very well. I recently got a 18-250 thus this one has been used less often. One kid goes to college, lenses can not be priority. I also got a new carbon tripod thus need big aperture less.

Photos later.

Also have a 72mm Canon UV and a 72mm Sunpak CPL, both mint and no scratches. $15 if you buy the lens.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> Now included for free.

The price is firm. I might change mind to keep it.

Photos are modified. Did them in a rush yesterday. Sorry.

Some PM asked me if the lens had front focus problem, I took a few shots this morning as requested, all jpgs, directly from k20D, no processing but resized. I don't see any focus problem, but you judge yourselves. (The pictures might look a little dark, it 's a very cloudy day here!)

I will answer PMs soon. Just came back from Micro center (too crowded)

From top:

f2.8 at 50mm

f8 at 50mm

f2.8 at 18mm

f8 at 50mm far away.

Gee, I used Portrait mode! The sharpness is a little higher in Landscape mode. Too lazy to change now.


Last one: raw file processed. hand hold, AF with no adjustment.

Cyber Monday Bump.

Some PMs but no offer yet.

Price reduced to $330 (2 boxed mint filters and USCONS shipping included). It's the year end, and it's too busy. If no one buys it, I will withdraw for now.

Thanks for looking.

Bump!

Most PMs have been answered.

Here again if I missed some:

The lens has no major scratches, but shows general usages (the rubberish lens body no longer has that dark black shiny look). The front lens cap doe not look new. All those cosmatic wear downs are minor.

Glass is perfect. No any visible dusts at all.

There is no focus issue or any optic issues. It works perfectly.

I don't know how it is compared to DA 16-45/4 in sharpness (don't have the DA). This lens is more for its versatility, indoor or out, dark or bright, portraits or landscape.... I also have many good family pictures (esp indoor) taken with this lens.

My record here is perfect and would not like to change that.

Also again, US shipping and 2 boxed filters are included. Both filters are perfect.

I prefer to ship to US or Canada. International insurance is not cheap.

Thanks.

Final bump!

The price is reduced to $300 shipped (and paypal fee included). But without filters (so I might get the same lens later or the new Sigma 17-70/2.8-4).
