***SOLD*** Asking $1,395.00 ***SOLD***

The date code is UW0516 - (May 2008).

Action photos within the listing have been taken with this lens.

Original box, packaging materials, lens hood, both lens caps, soft storage case w strap, tripod/monopod mount collar, 77mm Sunpak UV lens filter & original warranty cards will be included with your purchase.

Manufactured in May of 2008,... I purchased this just a few weeks later in June & has had a Sunpak UV filter attached from day 1. This is in MINT condition & VERY well cared for,... The lens hood has some light scuffs & there is no paint/finish loss on the body. A couple very small paint loss spots on the tripod collar mount. This lens has NEVER been dropped & always had the best of care. There is no dust, dirt, haze or unwanted matter inside.

Please view the photos taken with this lens,... originals are tack sharp but are lower resolution here for copyright purposes. The Blue Angel's photo(s) (taken w 1.4 extender attached) with this lens are among the fastest images you will probably try to capture. From NASCAR to portrait's to still's,... they all turn out wonderful. I usually shoot freehand with no tripod or monopod & these photos show the results from this beautiful lens. The reason for selling is to upgrade equipment. I hope this finds a caring new home & you enjoy it as much as I have.

Any questions,.... please ask! Buy with confidence as this is one of my babies,...:) I have been a UHH Member for a while now w postings. I did not join today,...lol If you know what I mean?!

A suggestion - This lens with a 1.4 extender makes an even greater pair!

You're an idiot I can get a Sigma 70-200mm and a better lens and with a 4 year warranty for less BRAND NEW. Also Sigma's Glass is being tested and found to be better than Canons glass these days. You need go back to the drawing board on the price.!!!!!


Why would you call someone an idiot who is simply trying to sell his lens, particularly when you seem to have no interest in it? This is a fair price for this lens in mint condition and with shipping included.

The funny thing about Canon lenses is that the firmware in the lens is protected by patent. This computer coding is never shared with any other manufacturer. Therefore, companies like Sigma, Tokina, Tamron and others who make lenses with the Canon EF or EF-S mounts are really only guessing at the coding. The amount of information the third party lenses share the camera body is limited and can effect the way the meter reads the scene and how well the sensor captures the image. When you buy a non-Canon lens for your Canon camera you are making concessions that most folks are not even aware of.

Your arguments read more like someone who is attempting to justify their own purchase of a third-party product and less like someone who can afford and is willing to own the best product.
