This is it, folks. The sexiest, most spectacular lens this side of the equator. You want your portraits to *POP*? Try shooting them 200mm at f/2. You want bokeh so creamy that you'll never be able to shoot with another lens again? Try shooting 200mm at f/2. Tack sharp, this lens is not for the faint of heart. This is YOUR chance to pick up THE lens of the decade.
I'm the 2nd owner, purchased from a fine skallywag on the fredmiranda forum. Lens body condition is 9.5/10 (just a couple faint scuffs where the lens hood attaches to the lens (duh, it's a massive hood), and glass is 10/10. This lens comes with cap, hood, leather hood pouch and case. Case is missing keys, but you could still toss it from the top of a roof without the sucker opening (please don't try that at home). Needless to say, I have to let this fine piece of Canon perfection go.
I purchased it last year for tax reasons and the time has come for me to rid of it. It was used on maybe 3 portrait sessions while it was in my possession (one maternity and 2 nature shoots). I'm primarily a wedding and real estate photography, for which this lens is not particularly well suited.
Price: $4500. Price includes insured shipping inside the continental US and regular PayPal. I'm located in Dallas, Texas and am more than willing to set up a time to check it out in-person.
Feedback: I have plenty of good feedback on the forum dating back to 2009 as well as "mritchy1146" on eBay.
