Many folks have asked me about selling camera gear. I’m starting to offload some glass. These four Canon lenses have all been used downrange either in Iraq, Afghanistan, or both, and probably in many other countries. This gear is in great condition. Many of my published photos were made through this glass.
The four lenses are on eBay and bidding starts at 50% off new price.
50mm F/1.2L USM (Start bid 768.50)
This is an incredible lens. Many of my best shots came from this glass. Excellent for low light. Very sharp. I love this lens but have three. (Two if someone buys this.)
Canon EF 16 mm - 35 mm F/2.8 USM II Lens (Start bid 759.50)
Another excellent lens: I have this range covered.
Canon EF Macro 100 mm F/2.8 USM Lens (Starting bid: $212.00)
This lens is okay. Very sharp, but the lack of IS (Image Stabilization) on a Macro makes usage difficult in handheld mode. I got the newer version with IS. If you have a tripod, this is great. If you are going to shoot macro handheld, don’t buy this.
Canon EF 24 mm - 70 mm F/2.8L USM Lens (Start bid: $671.09)
Another incredible lens, but I have two and no longer need the back up. This is a favorite among pros.
