    damn bro. I want that lens so bad :wtc:

    Did you buy it new or used? How much was it?

    The cheapest I've found new is a little over $900 on B&H

    got it used, in FLAWLESS condition for 750 shipped.


    It's beautiful. Warranty card included and all.

    Oh, and both shots posted were with this les, at 2.8, unsharpened.

    It's pretty!

    Oh, and this is me drinking wine and taking pics.
