Review Date: Nov 9, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Unique capabilities.
Cons:
Very heavy.

Some years ago I saw an ad for Canon body which came with a '50mm lens.' The price for the body was fair market value ($800), so I went to take a look. The '50mm lens' turned out to be the 50mm f1.0L Series, which I later sold here on Fred Miranda for $3,000 (there were people fighting over it at that price - in 2006).

The lens was in literally mint condition, but that caused me to be almost afraid to actually use it, due to it's value...which led to eventually selling it.
