I currently have a couple of Canon lenses that are available for sale. Both of these lenses produce superb results and the 500mm lens is responsible for the majority of the images I post on this blog. My main reason for selling is that I am looking to purchase a 600mm lens as I have moved across to a full frame camera.
I am only prepared to sell these lenses within the UK and would be happy for people to inspect by arrangement prior to purchase. I am prepared to courier the 500mm but would ideally prefer the buyer to collect from my home on the Wirral.
If you are interested in purchasing either lens or require further information then please do not hesitate to contact me through the contact form on the sidebar.
The lenses for sale are:
Canon EF500mm F4 IS USM
This lens is in excellent condition and has been lovingly looked after. The lens produces very sharp images and works well with the 1.4 teleconvertor when extra reach is needed. There are just a couple of very minor marks on the lens hood. The lens comes complete with the original carry case, tripod collar and lens hood. I would also provide a replacement Kirk lens foot with the lens which allows directed connection to a tripod head or gimbel without the need for a lens plate. I will be sorry to see this trusty lens go as it was the one that really opened up wildlife photography to me and has been faultless in its performance, but it is time to move on :)
I am selling this lens for £4500. THIS LENS IS NOW SOLD
Canon EF300mm F4 IS USM
This lens is in excellent condition and has been lovingly looked after. The lens produces very sharp images and works well with the 1.4 teleconvertor when extra reach is needed. This is useful as a travel lens due to its small size and weight. Also due to its close focusing distance is very good for zoo photography and a friend uses it very successfully for insects. I have used this lens successfully both for mammals and birds at very close range. There is just one very minor marks on the lens hood. The lens comes complete with the original box, carry case, tripod collar and lens caps.
I am selling this lens for £725 inclusive of postage. THIS LENS IS NOW SOLD
As you know I don't like to make a blog post without an image, so here is a red squirrel recently photographed at Formby. It is good to see that the squirrels there are making a good recovery after their numbers were severly affected by squirrel pox.
