For Sale: Canon 500mm f/4 IS Lens ((SOLD))

Filed under: canon, flash, gear, lenses, lighting, Photography — lmkssm @ 6:14 am

What I can say except that this has been a very tough decision for me to make, but a necessary one.

Since changing gears in photography, my trusty “500” has been sitting in the closet un-used for the past few years. I figured it’s time to let it go and for someone else to really enjoy this lens for what it’s worth. All I can say is that this will make a great wildlife and/or sports lens for any photographer!

For those of you who recently contacted me, here are a few pics that I snapped this evening:

A couple pics that I have taken with this lens:

I guess if I ever need one again it’s “rental” for me….gonna miss ya!!



  1. I’ve admired Canon for some while. A number of months ago I feel that as a business it had taken their eyes off the ball. For a while their particularly camcorder design was not what it used to be and IME, the quality of Canon’s camcorder manufacture was going south. HOWEVER, now I think they are tops even though they are not the cheapest camcorders.
