First off, I purchased this because apparently aside from the faster AF and the flare coating, the 85L I was nearly identical. I've used both now and I can attest to that. It was a GREAT lens and as long as you have enough light for the AF to hit, this is a great alternative and will save you $ from paying for the much pricier 85L II. Obviously the II is better in a lot of areas, but if you're just strictly looking for image quality, they go toe to toe. Now onto the sale.
Lens Date Code: UM0105
Lens Body Condition: 9/10 Body is pristine and shows almost no wear. Light white scratch on the inner barrel. One stripped screw on the rear lens mount.
Lens Glass Condition: 8/10 As this is an old lens, some dust is to be expected. Most of the dust is in the rear, and it's actually pretty easy to clean out if you can just unscrew the stripped screw on the rear. Dust does not affect image quality whatsoever. Front end looks pristine.
Sale Includes: Everything it came with minus box ( This includes the leather case, original hood, and caps. )
Price: $1000 shipped NET to me (+fees)
Feedback: I have sold on here numerous times and I have a great history of selling on eBay.
Reason for selling: Upgraded to 1.2L Mark II
