I found this as on craigs list and I can't seem to find a answer. Was there a 70-200 f/2.8 without the USM?

"This is the Original "White Lense" Low Light Sports Action non IS , no USM . I have shot High School and Professional Rodeo for many years with this lense . Its in great shape , glass is good , no scratches or fog . Has a few dings on the outside but nothing affecting the photo quality . Hate selling but getting older and don't shoot much anymore . .. I have added a shot taken with the lense so you can see the quality . I will ship but you gotta pay the shipping . will accept pay pal .. contact me for more info .. no scammers , price is firm , well worth the price ..."

Thanks

Thanks all, I couldn't find one either and I can't seem to contact the seller.

No IS no USM? probably f/4 (Which would not be low light) and if my memory serves me correctly, could be one of the earlier white lenses... Canon implemented USM in 1988. Not sure when the earliest off white lens was produced. Canon Historians anywhere?

Never hurts to take a look at it, but red flags should be up, as the description does not make sense right off the bat. Maybe its a 18-55 painted white...

Happy shopping.

From glancing at Canon's listing of telephoto zoom lenses, all of the models of 70-200mm f/2.8  (external link)units have had USM.

Look at the enlarged pic, buttons match perfectly, see fading red logo with ULTRASONICMOTOR towards the front.

Check out that lens! $550 is a steal if it is in good working order.

"steal" may be the operative word...

Yeah, I thought of that as I pushed the "Post" button. Be careful, my friend.

Offer less, and meet at a police station to test it out. Say that you feel safer doing a transaction with that amount of money, you would rather have the police around. I would think that someone selling stolen goods would not want to be near a police department (and probably on tape).


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim
