Are you interested in bird/wildlife photography – but starting at a reasonable price? I am offering a complete walk-about wildlife photographers camera and lens “kit”, as follows. Everything is in perfect condition and has been well looked after and carefully treated. Reason for selling – now surplus to requirements. This camera and lens combination is comfortable to walk around with and the image-stabilized lens makes hand-held photographs easy; perfect for those instant see the bird and photograph it moments. Ideal for sports photographers also.
The complete set comprises:
- Canon 7D DSLR 1.6x 18 megapixel 1.6x crop-body camera – Rugged construction with magnesium body and weather sealing; Fast autofocus and fast burst rate of 8 fps; Full HD (1920×1080) video as well as still photographs.
- Canon L-series 300mm (white body) f4 autofocus lens with image stabilisation (case included)
- Canon 1.4x (mark III) extender
Also available: Canon 2x (mark II) extender
An independent review of the camera’s features can be read at: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos7d
A review of the lens is available at: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-300mm-f-4.0-L-IS-USM-Lens-Review.aspx
Effective focal lengths:
- 300mm lens alone = 480mm
- 300mm lens + 1.4x extender = 672mm
- 300 lens + 2.0x extender = 960mm
I am not trying to get rich by selling these but would like them to go at a reasonable price to an enthusiastic birder etc who can make good use of them … so my “guide price” based on current eBay and Henry’s Cameras used equipment offerings for camera + lens + 1.4x extender is $1500 … or your best offer.
