p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · SOLD: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro (non USM)


Selling the Canon EF 100 f/2.8 macro (non-USM version). The 100mm macro is one of the sharpest and "contrastiest" non-L lens in the Canon lens lineup, with excellent color and bokeh. Focussing is dead slow, but one should be using manual focus with macro lenses anyway. It does 1:1 macro by itself without any extensions tubes/closeup filters.

Conservatively, I would probably rate the len's optics as 8+ (there are dust specs in the lens, as expected of a lens this old; but they do not affect picture quality at all). Mechanically and cosmetically, it is also 8+. The focussing ring is still nice and smooth, which is one of the important things to take note when looking at used macro lenses.

Reason for selling: I don't do enough macro to justify holding on to this lens + reorganizing lens collection. Sample macro/near-macro photos taken with this lens can be found here: http://www.galant-ho.com/spring04/phipps/index.htm

It is also a nice lens for normal use too: http://www.galant-ho.com/spring04/walkabout/index.htm

Looking at $330 + shipping via UPS Ground within continental USA only. If you're not satisfied with the lens, you have one week to return the lens and I'll refund you the money, excluding shipping. I am a non-smoker. Paypal accepted and preferred. E-mails only: [email protected]

Thanks for looking,
Wenyao
