The time has come to face reality. I just have to admit it and move on. I don't need this lens. There. I've said it. I feel a bit better already.
Do you know what would make me feel even better? If someone would love and use this lens. Is that you?
I'm a photographic gear head. I love cameras and lenses and gear. I just don't need to have it all myself. It's time to share the love and let someone have a bit of kit for a great price. Christmas is coming you know.
And in the Christmas spirit, I've set a very low price for this professional lens.
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Professional super-telephoto zoom with Image Stabilization. Lightly used for airshows. Comes with case, lens hood, and 77mm UV filter (always attached). Clean with no mould, fungus, dust or scratches.
£700 (plus actual postage, or collect from Cambridge). New these are £1325.
Update: the lens is now sold!
If you've ever wanted to get closer to the action, this is the lens for you, especially outdoors. Big but not a unwieldy; I've hand held this all day for shooting airshows. Fits all Canon bodies. I've personally used these lenses on a 400D, 50D, 7D, 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III with great results on all of them. In fact, on a crop-frame body this becomes a jaw-dropping 160-640mm f/4.5-5.6L IS lens. That's right, 640mm!
