Garage Sale

This new section of the website will be a place that will be exactly how it sounds: I will be selling cameras, lenses, speedlights and other equipment that I no longer need or use at far prices and an honest description of condition. All photographs are of the actual items. But first a mention of the condition of the gear itself:

When it comes to caring for photo equipment, there seem to be three kinds of photographers: This first group of people are the Oscar Madisons of photography. At the opposite extreme is (obviously) Felix Unger. Between these two extremes lie most of us, but I will confess to Unger-like impulses about caring for my photo equipment. You can read about this more, along with some tips on cleaning lenses, on my car photography blog.

Canon EF Compact-Macro 50mm F/2.5 Lens.  In Excellent to EXC+ Excellent condition. Lightly and carefully used, in original box with instructions and warranty cars. Sells for $300 new with used examples going for around $150. You can buy this one from me for $95 plus $7.15 USPS Priority Mail shipping. Weighs less than 10 oz and uses 52mm filters. Includes front and rear lens caps and come in original box.

Canon says: “A superior-performance lens offering excellent optics and focusing from infinity down to one-half life size (0.5x). Its nine-element design features a floating optical system, which ensures top-notch performance even at close focusing distances. Light and compact, it functions beautifully as a general-purpose normal lens.”

ProOptic aka Bower 8mm f/3.5 Fisheye Lens. It’s an ultra wide-angle manual focus lens that’s compatible with Canon EOS APS-C cameras and features a 180 degree angle-of-view that ideal for landscapes or unusual portraits.

It can focus as close as 12-inches, has multi-coated elements and a built-in petal-type lens hood to reduce flare and ghosting. Lens must be used in manual focus and manual exposure modes. Lens is in EXC+ condition. The Bower lens sells for $169.96 on the B&H website but you can buy this one for $75 plus shipping, including the bonus of a LensPen Elite.

Canon EF 22-55mm USM zoom lens Its design has nine elements in nine groups and uses the former Canon standard 58mm filters. It is in EXC+ to LN condition and will focus as close as 13.8-inches. It’s a great alternative to the EF-S 18-55mm kit lens and includes front and rear caps as well as EW-60D lens hood, itself a $26 value. The lens has USM so it focuses fast and itworks with any EOS series DSLR.

The lens comes with the original box with original instruction sheet. There’s even a Flickr group dedicated to this lens and I’ve made lots of great photos with it as well. These lenses sell for more than the asking price and don’t include the lens hood. $50 plus shipping.
