3/16 update: I have a trade deal pending on this lens. Will know for sure tonight whether or not everything will go through. Hello all, I'm considering selling my 24-70 f/2.8 in order to get the new, much more expensive, version II lens, or maybe something with IS. Anyone looking at this will probably know what this lens is about, so I won't bore you with the technical details. If you do need technical details, I will be more than happy to provide them via PM. I purchased this lens on 10/19/11 and it's in 10/10 condition. No issues with it whatsoever. It comes with the retail box and all accessories that were originally included in the retail package (soft pouch, hood, papers). Retail on this lens is $1,400 but there is currently a $100 rebate from Canon. I'm asking $1,100 but am willing to negotiate within reason. Some actual pics: If you would like to see sample pictures taken with this lens or have any further questions, please let me know. Thank you.
