Camera for sale

I’m selling a bit of my camera gear.  Let me know if you’re interested in any of this…

Canon 40D : the camera I’ve been using for the past 18 months or so. If you want to see sample shots, just scroll down for countless pages. It’s a 10.1 megapixel digital SLR. It will shoot 6.5 frames per second continuously (great for sports), recording the files as JPEG or RAW. This is Canon’s mid-level crop camera. I paid $1200 for it, and it’s selling new on Amazon now for $860. I’m asking $500.

Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens : a fantastic “walk around” lens, it’s from the Canon “L” series — their top pro line. I’m selling this because I recently purchased a 24-70mm f/2.8 L, and the lenses are too similar to need both. I’ve used this lens a lot, but you can see one blog entry shot exclusively with this lens here. This lens is $1050 new. I’m asking $800.

Canon EFS 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens: the lens I’ve used for all of the interior design shots on the blog, like this entry about our family room remodel, and this entry about the living room remodel. This is an ultra wide-angle lens, so it will capture a huge amount in the frame. Note that this is an “EFS” model lens, so it will only work on a body that supports that type. (If you have a Canon camera lower in the line than the 5D MK II, this lens should work fine. It just doesn’t work with full-frame pro gear.  I’m selling this lens because I’m buying a 5D MK II, and this lens won’t fit on that body.) This lens is $725 new. I’m asking $550.
