I thought a tele lens could be useful when photographing the streets of France. Boy, was I ever wrong. Photo's of a basket full of baguettes at 200 yards... foooey Swirling crowds of people in open air markets using an f/8 lens... not my style. Ok, so my experiment flopped. My flop is your gain. Like I said, It's like new. $1600 + shipping. I'm not set up for PayPal, but Visa/MC is ok.
