    FS: Canon 40D, 17-55 f/2.8 IS

    SOLD

    ************************************************** *********
    40D

    Purchased on FM 2 years ago and was my primary body for about 6 months, then a backup body, and now it is a 3rd body that I just can't afford to keep.

    Body and LCD are in great shape, approximately 22,000 clicks according to "40Dshuttercount."

    Comes with everything pictured including extra battery.

    $500 shipped & paypal

    17-55 f/2.8 IS

    I love this lens and will probably regret selling and buy another copy down the road. Ever since I purchased a 5D I find myself reaching for that for any landscape shots and can't justify keeping the 17-55 seeing as it only fits one body. The lens is in fantastic shape, glass is immaculate. There are two miniscule dust specks inside the lens that is quite common for these lenses and cannot be seen in any images however full disclosure is always best.

    $915 shipped and paypal

    I haven't taken shots of the lens yet but if that's a must let me know and I will

    17-55 is one of Canon's best lenses, if it wasnt an ef-s, it would have a little red line around the end of it.

    for an SLR newb looking for QUALITY gear at a great price, buying both these simultaneously from someone as reputable as Altman is a STEAL.

    Only 2? Did you ever take it out of the box?!!!! Jezum, mine is a dust magnet, it is filthy in there. Luckily, as you mentioned it doesn't mess up the images even at small apertures but 2 is just scary clean for this lens!!
    I think you have me confused with someone who is far less awesome.

    I wish the kit lens had that low of an aperture. Someone needs to take this deal!

    oh shit, forgot to change this. SOLD to Skifishbum. Yeah the lens was clean as hell. If for some reason I go back to only crop bodies, this one will be top on my list
