For Sale!

Well...I've took the plunge and ordered myself
a Canon 500, all I need to do now is sell my
Canon 400 5.6L to pay for all the other bit's
that I need to go with it.

All the photo's on this site have been taken
with this lens so you can see it's nice and sharp.
Any test welcome, I can send a few photo's
of the lens if required. The lens itself comes
with a camoflague cover, it's own case and I still
have the oringinal box somewhere for it.

Email me for further detail's or If you wish to view
let me know.
