I'm switching to Fuji X-T2 mirrorless camera and selling my Canon gear

Most everything has gone to a new home.   Last chance for some gently used gear.

Back in November of 2015, I purchased a Fuji X-T1 and four lenses from a local photographer buddy. I have been using both the Fuji and my older Canon 5D Mark II DSLR since then.  Over time I have found I was using the Fuji and leaving the Canon at home more and more.   The primary reason is the Fuji camera and lenses are much smaller and lighter.  As I get older I appreciate a light load when hiking or traveling.  I've found each camera has plusses and minuses but overall the quality of the images is similar.

A few months ago I decided I was approaching a fork in the camera equipment road and I was going to have to upgrade either the Canon or the Fuji.  The one that does not get the upgrade will be sold off along with all the related lenses and accessories.   Two days ago I ordered a new Fuji X-T2 camera and a Fuji 100-400mm zoom lens to add to the collection of Fuji gear.

The time has come to put the Canon gear up for sale.  I went to KEH, Adorama, and Fred Miranda to check prices for used gear in similar shape to mine.  I believe the prices below are fair and the average of what you would pay at these sites.  I prefer to sell locally but will ship within the US for an additional fee.

I have alway taken good care of my camera gear and you will find these are in good to excellent shape.  You can click on any image below to zoom in.  Once you have zoomed in to one you can use the right and left arrow keys to flip between images.

Canon EF300mm f/4.0L IS Prime lens (review). This is my newest lens and the one that got the least use.  It looks and works like brand new.  It has an integrated lens hood.  Comes with the tripod mount ring, end caps, and a soft case. $800.

Sigma 80-400 f/4.5-5.6 EX OS Zoom lens (review). This is one I've had for a while and haven't used much since I got the 300mm prime lens. This is a solidly built lens but it is heavy (3.6 pounds). This comes with the lens hood, tripod mount ring, end caps, and a soft case.   The finish on the outside is peeling off in places. Doesn't hurt the operation of the lens but doesn't look very nice. There are very few of this lens available for sale.$250.

Contact me if you are interested in any of these items.
