06 October 2016 - 12:40 PM

Nikon and Canon lenses for sale : 
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.  $1150.  
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 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM UD Telephoto Zoom Lens … in excellent condition.  I used this for one trip to Australia.  The glass is perfect, no scratches.  The body is in near-mint condition.  $1049.  
Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR Lens for EOS Digital SLRs … in excellent condition.  $499.
Tokina AF DX 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 Fisheye Zoom - Canon Mount … in excellent condition.  $469. The perfect lens for wide angle shooting with APS-C cameras.  
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.  $469.  More notes on this lens below.  
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.  
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.  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.

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.
