Used Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens for Sale

I am selling my beloved Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x Lens. It is in excellent condition, I would rate it at Excellent+ or near-New. The built in 1.4x teleconverter means it has an overall range of 200mm to 560mm. (It is f/4 from 200mm-400mm, or if the teleconverter is switched it is f/5.6 from 280mm-560mm.) In terms of quality this lens matches the Canon 200, 300 and 500 primes I have owned, all in one lens. The glass is perfect, exterior in beautiful condition, AF and IS both work flawlessly. It has always been hand-carried, and used on only one trip (Africa). I am shooting Nikon now and, while I have kept one last Canon body so I could use this lens, it’s time for me to consolidate my gear. The price is $7500, cash or equivalent. That’s $3500 below the new price. In person pickup is preferred as the original hard shell case and box are large, but if you elect for shipping buyer pays UPS insured shipping. To give you an idea of how I have used this lens, here are a few images taken with it on a full-frame Canon body. The photo of the lens is a screen shot from Canon’s web site. Here is a link to Canon’s specs on this lens. I am the original and only owner. The lens was purchased with USA warranty in 2014. This is the *perfect* lens for an African safari, you can hand-hold it from your safari vehicle all day. The lens comes with original front cover, rear body cap, hard front hood, hard shell (luggage style) case, manual and box. Contact me at phillipcolla@gmail.com or text 760.707.7153.
