that 16-35 II is a really good lens... $1200 is about right for a decent one

skip the mk I

portland.craigslist.org/mlt/pho/3514008540.html

that and a 100mm macro (for close..... or portraits) a used one is about $400-450

portland.craigslist.org/mlt/pho/3519661138.html

and you have a heck of a lot covered....maybe a 50mm...

even a $100 .... 50 1.8 II

/////////////

when you are looking for a lens on Craigs...

try other major cities for the lens also...just you can really get a handle on the price...

and what other offers have to say to describe it... look at a bunch of ads then you will understand the issues

use care...their are scammers

only answer and deal with serious people...they have cash if serious

THEN

look locally.....meet publicly....I meet on Library steps...they have security there..

bring a friend

accept cash ONLY

insist on $100 bills

and - dont be shy - feel the embossed stamp...and see watermark against brite light...each bill

with care ....you can do well

stay on that 16-35...it brings out good stuff on 5D2
