    I know many will probably bag on the lens, but for the price I got it... I couldn't pass it up.

    Got a MINT Canon 580EX ii Speed Flash & a 17-85mm lens for $400. The lens came with UV and hood and is in pristine condition.

    I've sold two 17-85's in canada for $390-400 each

    edit: actually 3 hahaha

    the 580EX 2 will easily sell for $400 as well in Canada

    $400 for both is just nuts

    Yea that's a great deal. And the 17-85 isn't nearly as bad as everyone likes to make it out to be. I loved it as a cheap vacation lens.

    Pic of the loot. I think the guy didn't really know what he had. I talked him into $300 for flash and he said he also had a camera (30D) and a 17-85 lens that was scratched that he wanted to sell. So I looked at the lens and the only thing that was scratched was the UV filter, i unscrewed it and it was perfect. I told him since it was scratched i'd give him $100 for it and he was all over it. I bet I could have picked up that 30d for like $200 lol.

    One question though. It looks like the 580EXii is the Jap model, he gave me the JAP manual. Maybe he did fuck me... is there any difference from the US model?

    I just got done playing with wireless flash and it's tits!

    No shit, apparently they're all made in japan so it doesn't make a difference. If it was a china or Taiwan made one I'd be worried :noes:
