Item Description
I have this relatively rare lens for sale. I only bought it month or so ago, tried to like it but despite it's great IQ, it's just too long for me. I'm sure I'd like it on FF, but since that's very distant future I'm looking for a new home for this one.
I'll be using Royal Mail International signed for if in EU or Royal Mail special delivery. (6working days, next day respectively).
All charges are included.
Now to condition.
Lens works perfectly, body is in Excellent condition but there are 2 blemishes on the glass.





Blemish #1 is on the rear element, from inside. It looks like somebody dismantled the lens and touched the rear element from inside. It's not hazing nor fungus (it hasn't changed shape nor size since I got the lens) and it doesn't affect the IQ as it's out of the frame (even on FF it would be IMO). Here is the picture (look between 4-5 o'clock, very edge of the element, slighly paler smudge kind of thing):


blades are clean and snappy:




Blemish #2 is scratch on front element. It doesn't affect IQ on APS-C, and it's not the size nor serious enough to be damaging IQ on FF/film IMO.
Here visible at 10 o'clock positon, right above the light reflection:

Thanks Nuno,
It's a great lens, but I'm struggling to "see" it. As I wrote, I'm sure I'd love the FOV on FF.

A great lens and one of my favs. I think you just need to use it more to get the hang of it. Anyway good luck with the sale.

A week sooner and I'd be all over this lens, but I've just purchased a Tamron 70-200/2.8...

Anyway, free bump!

These don't come up often! Somebody will be very happy with this lens!

I briefly had the F version of this lens and it was a great performer too. Very sharp, beautiful bokeh, extremely fast focusing and a pretty short minimum focusing distance.
