    Barely used, owned it for 3 months now i think?
    I paid $2000 for it at a local camera shop. Its just not a lens i need really.

    I'd be willing to trade for a used Nikon 70-200VR (older model) and $250 cash
    or $1800.

    :hsd:

    LOL Heinzanova used this lens on our Europe Trip. That damn lens is so wide, especially on a FX.

    Yea. I could see using it for some things, but in all honesty, i'd rather just get a 20mm prime and get the same use out of it.

    I just have been disappointed in myself for not finding an opportunity to use it more. I do find myself looking at a 35mm and a long range like the 70-200.

    In all honesty i might just keep it safe for the time being. Just trying to see if anyone would be interested in the trade actually. :hs:

    i use the tokina 11-16 on my DX. i mean hell, it's wide. def a special purpose lens. i do enjoy using it outside though. it takes some pretty pictures of buildings

    its a great lens, and definitely a specialty item, its one of those lenses that if you need it, nothing else can even compare. But if you dont need it, well... its 2k sitting in yoru bag.

    This.

    I hardly use mine, it is so wide, it is very hard to use with out having to specifically go out and finding a use for it.

    Order of favorite lenses goes:
    70-200 2.8 VR
    600mm F4
    24-70 2.8
    then the 14-24... it is

    Yea I don't see much of a market for it since it is a niche item. I doubt it will go but I figure I'd put the word out. I am planning on anothe trip over seas for spring break maybe , so it would see use there I'm sure.

    I've only used it shootng at parties at bars due to cramped spaces. Pix cme out great and razor sharp. :cool:

    These sell all the time on FredMiranda. Pay the $25 for the year and list it over there. You'll get $1500-1550 within a few days. There's a WTB ad up for one right now.

    Edit: Is your listing price $1800? I doubt you're gonna get close to that. Maybe $1600 tops.

    That was the last piece to complete the trinity for me. I use it a lot more than the 24-70 now, but to each his own.
