Selling my Strange Camera Lenses

After buying a Canon 60mm 2.8 lens for a project where I’m photographing old slides and being amazed at the image quality, I’m selling off some of my older lenses that I’m just not satisfied with anymore.

The Tokina AT-X PRO DX AF SD 16-50 mm f/2.8 is a wonderful lens and it takes really great photos, but two things about it drive me nuts. One, it’s really heavy, and two, it racks out “backwards” from canon lenses (so, like a Nikon lens) and this drives me crazy.

The other major lens I’m getting selling off is the Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD. This lens is a great walk around lens and there really aren’t any other lenses in its price range that can touch its zoom range, but it’s horribly slow on the long end, and, again, it racks out like a Nikon lens, which drives me nutty.
