Hi,

I'm interested in buying used lenses if you have some available. I may be interested in any of the following:
Canon 20mm/2.8
Sigma 20mm/1.8
Canon 50mm/1.8 (series 1 or 2)

I'm only interested in these if they are spotless. Besides no markings on the glass, this means no dust inside, and no fungus between the lens elements. If you're not sure about checking for fungus, then I'll respectfully pass on it.

If you have something for sale, contact me through my profile..

Thanks for reading this far!!

Canon 20mm F2.8

Sigma 20mm F1.8

I have bought my 4 lenses from e-bay. So far so good.

That Sigma is an interesting lens. F1.8 for a 20mm looks pretty interesing. Seems to be well reviewed by users at //www.photographyreview.com

Thanks for that. I'm always weary about lenses over eBay. I see a lot of 2nd hand lenses at work, and everyone always believes they're perfect... until you show them the fungus, etc., between the elements. I guess it could always go back onto eBay if I didn't like it...

If you want all that and guaranteed...better go straight OOB then. Second hand you will be disappointed in some way and no way of return (usually).
