    FS: Canon 200mm f/1.8L

    I'm selling my most loved lens. It hasn't been getting used too much this winter, I need the funds to cover other expenses. In the spirit of full disclosure I will describe the lens the best way I can.

    Canon 200mm f/1.8L UG Date code.

    $3300. Shipping included. If paying with paypal, pay with personal option or add 3%. I can also take money orders.

    Lens Condition: Optics are clean and clear. There is a dust Spec that is visible in the lens. (pic on the bottom) No scratches, haze, or fungus in the lens elements. Canon Geletin II filter in is is clean and clear. Focusing is fast and smooth. Images are the sharpest I've ever seen in a canon lens.

    Body Condition: Body has some paint chips. Photos best describe it. There is some wear on the area where the hood would be latched. The tripod mount has some paint chips around the corners of the lens.











    Here are sample images I took with it. Warning: 100% Res

    Hood Condition: Hood has some dents, and some scratches on the cloth from the inside. That being said. In it's current state the Hood can't be latched on. I think it's missing a screw to "hold" the hood on the body. I bought it like this. I'm sure the part can be bought online somewhere.





    Leather Bag/Lens Cover: Is in good shape. However, The glue on the bottom which you drop the lens bag came off. See pic below. (works like a lens cap now!) no pun intended.

    Is that taking "have a back-up" to an extreme?

    With you, Guy, I'm assuming bought-and-sold as moving through systems and changing business needs, but I can't help but picture you toting 3x 200 f/1.8s on 3x 1Ds form-factor bodies

    Just wondering if $2150 is a typo or not? At 2150, I'm thinking about it for sure.
