Hello - I need and would like to ask here.
Anyone ordered 80-200/2.8 via ebay - shipped from Japan? Any experience? There is plenty of lenses shipped from Japan and I am curious because...
... I love the price
... I like it is still an L lens
... It is a different color than new L lenses(dark one is amazing)
I am afraid that the one I will order from Japan - and it will be shipped to Europe - will not be sharp with my 5D Classic. I am a huge fan of this lens. Does not matter it is 80, not 70mm. It is still a 2.8 lens! L lens! With great overall results.
I ordered 2 times from Japan- ebay. The Japanese are very responsible people! the first time was a lens in good quality, the second time I was looking close to ideal (well, as ideal ... you have to understand that the lens is at least 25 years old))) choose sellers with the highest rating ... and wait ... sometimes there are practically no lenses ... and sometimes "time capsules" appear)) I like the 80-200 lens more than modern 70-200
On canon 5dm2, 6d, 7d the lens works great.
