    Yeah yeah, i know this isn't a classifieds forum, but bleh.

    Hi guys, since the canadian dollar sucks and i'm heading down to the states for a week, i need the blang.

    I've got a UT date coded 24-70L. There's some minor scuffs where i put on the hood. The hood also has a hairline crack on it, but for all intents and purposes, the lens is in awesome condition. I just got it a few months ago, but didn't really use it that much because i actually preferred the 24-105L. I'm looking for $925 (net to me) shipped. Open to offers as well :big grin:

    i have feedback on ebay: wrx-sti
    revscene.net + redflagdeals.com: beatdownvictim

    The original owner of this lens took this back to Canon to have it calibrated b/c there was some front-focussing issues, but the lens focuses properly now. And as usual, the lens is sharp :p (when are used lenses NOT sharp?)

    It wasnt a joke. I was confused on what you wanted. You live in Canada but are talking about coming here. I have no clue what that lens sells for in Canada nor do I keep abreast of the current exchange rate.

    I was simply looking for clarity.

    Just a guess. But it's lighter, 35 more mm, and has IS.

    basically that's why. I do more shooting of still objects, and if i need a faster lens i have my 85mm 1.8.

    Anyway, if someone wants it, price drop

    $900 now :p

    because he purchased the 24-70 since it was the new hype lens and found out it truly isn't as great as the price you pay. :dunno:
