Built like a TANK There's a reason why this lens is still going for $900-$1,000 on ebay.................................It's the most focal range telephoto lens to date With great optics, great focal distance both close and far while boasting bang for the buck status for quality and performance. This is the newer EX DG HSM version and not to be confused with the older less desirable APO EX version. Price is FIRM as Fort Knox and will come with both UV + Circular Polarizer filter valued together at $100 Reduces window glare and water reflection.
