Only one question needs to be answered really, are you using it ? I have one and whilst it truly is amazing, I haven't put it on my camera for 6 months or more. Before that, It was months again.

I'm thinking of selling mine too, I haven't taken 500 shots with it in 2 years probably, it's not a focal length that's useful to me, I bought into the hype. ( justified hype too )

Good points. I couldn't keep a lens if I haven't mounted it in 6 months.

I didn't think you ever kept any piece of gear that long...

Hey now... many changes take place when anyone moves to FF.

My 430EXII is my oldest gear. Purchased it 10/11.

Ironically for whats in my signature the Sig 35 is the oldest lens I've acquired and next would be the 8mm. Both of which are 10 months

Seeing how you've owned 5 different crop cameras in like what 2-3 years, I would say going FF has little to do with it. At least your wife is cool with it. There might be some jealousy talking here...
