i bought this (new) in novemeber of 08 and used it for one photo outing.

it is mint, has all caps, case, filter adapter and box and works flawlessly.

i also have a b+w uv filter (82 mm) that fits onto the adapter that will be included.

this set up on ebay is going for about $650 for the lens and 80 for the filter.

my price includes the above plus shipping and paypal fees.

$600. u.s.

the proceeds will be added to my rd1 fund...

thanks for looking,
