Selling my 17-35, its time for an upgrade.
Its a nice lens! is it the sharpest thing at 2.8? nah, is it reasonably sharp enough at 2.8? YUP!
the body is in almost perfect shape, besides the very small little knick in the body.
the AF is spot on and fast, it takes 77mm filters! which the other 2.8 ultra wides don't ( the L's ).
you get a 2.8 L ultra wide for a very reasonable price.
The glass has a internal element that is "de-cementing" is what I was told when I bought it. when you look in the corner while looking through the rear, you can see a semi circle on the inside element. what does this mean? pretty much nothing. throughout the entire F stop range I have yet to see any side effects of it.
the glass its self is virtually dust free and scratch free. If I didn't tell you about the De-cementing, you wouldn't realize there is anything wrong.
the price : 450 Shipped and PP'd -OR- OBO + shipping & PP.
