*** UPDATE: ALL ITEMS GONE ****
Now that I have parted with my 7D I have no use for EF-S glass.

I kept it until the very last moment... Great glass, sharp as a tack, real work horse for weddings, indoors, and general low light, as it's fast omnifocal f/2.8 and great IS allows to handle the toughest scenarios.

I'm an original owner. Box, paperworks, etc.


#1: Canon EF-S 17-55/2.8 IS USM - $899

HOYA UV 77mm filter is included ($60 value)

#3: Back glass see-through

#4: Lens with petal hood in working position

It has been cleaned by Canon Irvine CPS about a year or so ago, and I almost didn't use it since, as I have switched to FF body.

I take paypal, money orders. Shipping extra, depending on how you want it. I don't mind shipping worldwide.

    May be a silly question from a novice , but can you not use this with a 7d ? and what would it work with?

    Interested
    I have been looking at this lens. Can you give me a little more info? How long have you owned it? What is the condition of the focus motor? How is the zoom and focus ring? Are there any dents or scratches which are not visible on the photos? Have you had problems with dust behind the front element? I am not noticing any but I have read it is a problem.

    Thanks for your time.

    I think I got about 5 years ago (don't remember exactly), but after I switched to FF body 3 years ago it has seen very little use.
    Lens is in a perfect working condition, quiet, fast, no dust or anything.
    As I have mentioned, I got it cleaned by Canon Irvine and I don't think I used it after that except for maybe a few in-house snaps.
    The only thing that shows usage marks is the petal hood, but those are hard to avoid when you actually use it outdoors.
