Nikon and Canon lenses for sale

10 February 2017 - 10:59 AM

Nikon and Canon lenses for sale: 
all come in the original box and have the original USA warranty card.  The warranty may have expired but the card is proof that this is a USA lens, not an import -- and therefore Canon and Nikon will repair the lens if needed.  
 
All lenses are in excellent to mint condition.  I rarely used any of these lenses; and when they were used, they were encased in an underwater housing -- a nearly perfect environment for cameras and lenses -- as long as the housing is never flooded!  None of these lenses were flooded.  
 
For sale: 
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm 1:4G ED VR lens: absolutely mint.  Brand new.  I took this lens out of the box and then never used it.  It is perfect, and comes in the original box with warranty card and all accessories like hood and cloth case.  $1050.  
 
For Canon: 
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Fixed Lens for Canon SLR Cameras, like near-mint condition.  $349
 
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras: absolutely mint.  Brand new.  I took this lens out of the box, cut out the UPC code for a rebate, and then never used it.  It is perfect, and comes in the original box with  all accessories.  $779.  
 
 
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR Lens for EOS Digital SLRs … in good condition.  $399.  There's a small hair or something inside the lens, on the outer edge, so it does not show up in photos.  There's also a piece of dust inside the lens, which could be blown out.  I don't believe that htis dust speck shows up in images either.  
 
 
Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Canon Cameras …in excellent condition.  This lens focuses down to 1:3.  It's a great medium wide-macro lens.   $469.  More notes on this lens below.  
 
 
 
If you are interested, please contact Norbert Wu at temp2_at_norbertwu.com.  Please no phone calls.  I am happy to entertain reasonable offers.  I can accept credit cards, Paypal, and personal checks.  Personal checks will have to clear my bank before the product is shipped; which can take up to three weeks.  Shipping will be at buyer's expense (at actual cost) and will be UPS Ground, Fedex Ground, or USPS Priority Mail (all of which give tracking of packages).  If we conclude a deal, I'll give you a quote for shipping via one of the above methods.  I can even throw in a signed copy of one of my books, Under Antarctic Ice, at $20 (50% off) if you buy a lens.  A book along with a lens will likely result in a bit of an increased shipping cost.  
 
Thanks!

More notes on the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Lens for Canon Cameras:
 
Here are comments from Ryan Canon, the underwater guru/expert at Reef Photo in Ft. Lauderdale, about this lens: 
 
The best mid-range zoom for Canon EF-S is Sigma 17-70.  There have been three versions, original plane jane 17-70, then 17-70 HSM, and now the current 17-70 OS HSM.
 
HSM is Sigma verbage for fast motor focus, like nikon af-s, or canon USM.  The original was pretty slow to focus, so this is a welcome improvement.
 
The HSM and stabilization features are nice, and worth while, but unfortunately reproduction ratio has decreased with every revision.  Originally it was 1:2, then 1:2 point something or other on the HSM, and now 1:3 on the OS HSM model.
 
A 7.8cm x 5.2cm frame is still pretty small for macro video, but you have to decide whether that is good enough for you or not. [Norb's note: this was perfect for shooting macro subjects for me, but obviously not things below 1:3].  
 
We can set the lens up behind a flat port for use in the 35-70mm focal length, which probably makes sense for macro video.  You can also use it behind a dome for the full zoom range which some people like with skittish stuff like reef sharks.  
 

FS: Nauticam Straight and 45-degree Viewfinders

17 October 2016 - 06:40 PM

FS: Nauticam Straight and 45-degree Viewfinders
 
I used both of these viewfinders on various Nauticam housings, including housings for Nikon D800, Nikon D7000, and Panasonic GH4 cameras (if I remember correctly).  
 
These viewfinders are for Nauticam DSLR housings.  I understand that Nauticam now makes viewfinders for mirrorless cameras, so check with an expert to be sure that your housing will accept one of these viewfinders (I am not one).  I am pretty sure that these fit my GH4 housings, but I ended up not using them at all on my GH4 housings (I just used the LCD screens for simplicity).  
 
Both of these viewfinder are in perfect working condition, and excellent cosmetic condition.  The straight viewfinder has a small water spot on the outside glass element; you can't see it when you are looking through it.  
 
The straight v/f comes with rubber caps for both sides along with a soft case; the 45-degree v/f comes with a soft case but only rubber cap for the large outside glass.  
 
Prices: 
Straight viewfinder: $895
45-degree viewfinder: $795

FS: Nauticam Wet Wide Lens 1 (WWL-1) and M77 to Bayonet Mount Converter

15 October 2016 - 08:25 AM

For Sale: Nauticam Wet Wide Lens 1 (WWL-1) and M77 to Bayonet Mount Converter
 
Nauticam Wet Wide Lens 1 (WWL-1) 130 deg. FOV: used once in Car Wash cenote in the Yucatan.  Mint condition.  Retails for $1150, selling for $979
More info: 
 
Nauticam M77 to Bayonet Mount Converter for Wet Lenses WWL­1/CMC: Mount this adaptor on your flat port with 77mm thread to permit rapid, simple, easy, and secure, attachment of the Nauticam WWL-1, CMC, or SMC wet lenses with Nauticam Bayonet mount.  Retails for $80, selling for $65.  
 
I used the above on a Panasonic GH4 housing with a 12-50mm lens.  The port for the 12-50mm lens has a 77mm thread -- therefore the M77 mount converter for sale above.  
 
Photographers have been raving about the WWL-1 lens, and rightly so.  Nauticam has produced a wet lens that converts certain Micro-4/3 lenses into wide-angle lenses that produce sharp, clear images.  Nauticam knows their optics and has produced a unique, useful product.

FS: Nauticam NA-DP4 housing monitor and SmallHD 4.3" monitor

15 October 2016 - 08:13 AM

 
For sale: Nauticam NA-DP4 housing monitor and SmallHD 4.3" monitor
 
This housing and monitor were built in 2012, and they have worked well with a Canon 7D, Nikon D800, and Nikon D7000.   Both the housing and the monitor are in excellent cosmetic condition and perfect working condition.  
 
With the above (and likely newer Canon and Nikon bodies), this was and is a fabulous tool for any stills or video shooter, as the monitor/housing worked well and quickly (without a lot of steps required) with those cameras for both stills and video shooting.  I used it often, and it became essential when I was shooting video.  I stopped using it a lot about two years ago when I started using a Panasonic GH4 camera.  
 
I ended up using the GH4 body's LCD screen for most of my shooting, particularly wide shots for stills and video, and the LCD screen worked great.  I used the monitor/housing for those occasions when I was shooting macro and needed to see the image over the camera body.  It took a while to sync up (requires you to power the camera, monitor etc up in a particular sequence) but once it got going in video mode, it worked well.  I would not use this monitor with the GH4 to shoot stills -- it is too slow to show an image preview and then go back to live view.  
 
It's a testament to the durability and design of the smallHD monitor and the Nauticam housing that it still works after three generations of digital camera technology.  
 
The smallHD housing comes with a battery plate that accepts two Canon type LP-E6 batteries.  
 
Complete with everything in the photos: SmallHD monitor, housing, moisture sensor, mounting ball, non-OEM charger and two batteries (Canon type LP-E6). 
HDMI bulkhead (Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve, p/n# 25611) and internal HDMI cord also included.  If we agree on a purchase, I'll look in my workshop and will include any other accessories that came with the SmallHD monitor -- but the above will be all you need to get underwater.  
 
Asking $875.  Please confirm with an expert (I am not one) whether this system will work with your camera and housing.  It's made for Nauticam housings and will install in one of their bulkhead holes (I think size M12).  I am happy to send this out for evaluation after we discuss the situation via email, but any buyer wishing to return these items will have to pay the return shipping as well as the outbound shipping.  
 
 
If you are interested, please contact Norb Wu at temp2_at_norbertwu.com.  Please no phone calls.  I am happy to entertain reasonable offers.  I can accept credit cards, Paypal, and personal checks.  Personal checks will have to clear my bank before the product is shipped; which can take up to three weeks.  Shipping will be at buyer's expense (at actual cost) and will be UPS Ground, Fedex Ground, or USPS Priority Mail (all of which give tracking of packages).  If we conclude a deal, I'll give you a quote for shipping via one of the above methods.

FS: Olympus Micro-4/3 Lenses, Panasonic GH4 body, and Nauticam Port for GH4 housing

14 October 2016 - 01:52 PM

I have the following Panasonic and Olympus gear (for the Panasonic GH4 camera and other Micro-4/3 cameras)  for sale: 
 
All items are in like new condition.  I used these in an underwater housing for two trips.  As most uw photographers know, cameras and lenses sealed in a housing are used in about as perfect an environment as possible.  There's no dust, for instance; and dive crews usually days handle the gear very carefully.  As long as the housing has never been flooded, the gear should be in excellent shape -- far better than used cameras and lenses  used topside.  
 
All the below items are in like-new cosmetic and perfect working condition.  
 
 
Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ Lens (Black)
Nauticam Macro Port and Zoom Gear Set For the above lens
see extensive notes below. 
The port also fits the Olympus MSC ED M. 60mm f/2.8 macro Lens. 
 
The lens retails for $499.  I am selling it for $439.  
The zoom gear and port retails for $800.  I am selling the gear and port for $599.  
 
 
Olympus MSC ED M. 60mm f/2.8 macro Lens: brand new in box.  Never used.  Selling for $399.  
 
Olympus M.ZUIKO 40-150mm f/2.8 Interchangeable PRO Lens for Olympus/Panasonic Micro 4/3: brand new in box.  Never used.  Selling for $1299.  
 
 
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH4 BODY DSLM Mirrorless 4K Cinematic Camera Body Only (Black): like-new cosmetic and perfect working condition.  Used as a backup camera.  Retails for $1298 on Amazon, selling for $1099.

About the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ Lens, gear, and port combination: 
 
I used the above lens, gear, and port on a Panasonic GH4 system.  The lens should fit on any Micro 4/3 camera.  I hope to sell the lens, gear, and port together, because putting the gear on the port, while guided well with the instructions, was quite a process.  
 
This lens and gear/port combination is perfect for someone with a GH-4 camera, who wants to shoot both wide and macro on the same dive.  It has a 24mm angle of view (equivalent to a 35mm full frame lens) and focuses down to .  With the Nauticam zoom gear, you have power zoom capability.  I loved using this lens. It is truly a "one lens does it all" as I was able to use it to shoot wide scenes and macro during the same dive, without having to change lenses.  
 
Macro specifications for the lens: 
Min focus 0.20 m (7.87″)
Max magnification 0.36×  (focuses close enough so a postage stamp fills the frame -- just tested it, see the sample image).  
 
from the web: True macro would be 1:1 meaning a one inch object would be one inch on the sensor/film. So this lens would have a one inch object being .36 inches on the sensor. Which is quite good given the sensor size...In this case, a rectangle from the business card about 2 inches wide would fill the width of the final photo. A true macro lens should have a magnification of about 1, and for a general purpose lens, 0.36 is very very good. It means that a postage stamp will be blown up to fill your monitor screen....
 
 
From the web: 
This special gear and port solution allows the physical macro switch on the 12-50 lens to be operated, and enables the lens' entire zoom range.  This solution provides both more magnification and the full range of focal lengths from 12-50mm, which is not possible in competing housings.
 
This port has 77mm threads;  67mm mount wet lenses can not be directly attached.  Use the Nauticam 67mm Flip Diopter Holder for 77mm Ports.
