I have for sale a Canon 135 F/2L USM lens. It could use some cosmetic cleaning. The glass condition is excellent.

The reason this is priced so low is because of a faulty AF/MF focusing issue. The lens works. Don't be discouraged.

However there are times where the autofocus will not work. I've worked around this by shaking/spinning the MF ring around a few times and then the lens will be able to autofocus again. Also MF does not work very well. Switch to MF and you can try to manually focus, however spin the ring however you want, the lens will not shift focus. It seems to be "loose". Perhaps someone with a CPS Gold or higher membership would be able to get this serviced at an affordable price. lol boom, a 135 for less than 500$.

I do not know what the issue is. This started up about two years ago. Could be a burnt out motor or a faulty connection. But because it does still work and I still use it nearly every day I can't really list this as a 'For parts or repair only' sale. I'm selling because I would like to fund an 85L lens.

I'm asking for just 300$ + 15$ for shipping (315$ total net to me). Comes with the Hood as well. I do not have the original box for it anymore.
