Canon 500mm f/4 USM IS

For Sale:  Canon 500mm F/4 USM IS Lens + 1.4x Extender VIII

I am selling my beloved lens.  This lens is what helped me initially skyrocket my career, gave me many great images, experiences, and more.  

I have owned this lens since May 2011. 

  I purchased the lens from Adorama for $6149.00. 

•  I purchased the 1.4x teleconverter for $425.00 in 2015 from B&H

•  I purchased the LensCoat in 2011 for $124.00.

I have original receipts upon request.  

What's included:

•  Canon 500mm f/4 USM IS Lens (excellent condition)

•  Original Canon Case (like new)

•  Canon 1.4x VIII Extender (their newest one),  (excellent condition)

•  LensCoat covering for 500mm Lens

•  Lens hood and soft lens cover

•  Arca-swiss style/mount bracket for lens foot.  Enables safe mounting to gimbal head or ball head for your tripod.


•  Beautiful glass end to end on the 500mm.  No scratches, chips, cloudiness or cracks.

•  Beautiful  glass on the 1.4x VIII Extender. This is included in the price.  No scratches, chips, cloudiness or cracks. (Bought new from B&H Photo for $429.00 in May 2015.)

•  Comes with LensCoat neoprene lens wraps.  This camera has never been without them.  They add protection for the lens from any bumps, chips or scrapes. 

•  Original Canon case included.  The case is in like-new condition.

This lens has never been dropped, handled roughly, or needed repairs.  It is tack sharp with its focus.  It has been a prized possession of mine since 2011.  There are no known issues with focus, auto focus, motor issues, or other concerns.  There are a few small cosmetic paint chips (about 1-2mm  in width) along a few edges from normal wear and tear that do not affect performance in any way.  Please see images for details. 

Price:  $3500 or best offer

Shipping not included.  Shipping will include professional packaging. Cost will be actual costs for ground shipping ( FedEx or UPS, whichever you prefer or whichever is least expensive.)  You will be quoted with final costs before shipping, depending on your address.  US Shipments only.  Local pickup available at no cost.
