Like you, I'm from Canada.
Your best bet, sadly, is Ebay.

I was lucky enough to find a mint one for $300 on my local craigslist recently. But I was very lucky as these don't come up often at all.

I know some have used neutral density filters with this lens, but I am looking for more info on the setup. I've heard suggestions of ND gels to fit on the back of the lens, but nothing in depth on how they are applied/retained. Would anyone that has experience chime in on this?

I use this lens mainly for film work and not being able to use ND filters is limiting me to early evening shoots or indoor.

It's about a half mile hike from the White Tank campsite roughly half way through the park.

I've read a lot of users had issues with getting a good focus with this lens, but having seen some sharp pictures, doesn't seem to be the case.


Lighting is an ART...
