Greg, a friend of mine, sent me a message letting me know he is selling a lot of his camera gear. I’ve listed out below what he has for sale and a comparison to what is might currently find it for new and used elsewhere. I don’t think you’ll be able to get a better deal.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, please reply to the forum, Pro Gear For Sale. I trust that Greg to adhere to his Christian ethics to answer honestly any questions you may ask about the condition of the gear. When buying used equipment, it’s always wise to ask for details. This article on Things to Consider When Buying Used Camera Gear may give some ideas for what kind of questions to ask.

Greg says that “We’re remodeling our house and need to clear up some extra cash. The equipment comes with original boxes, bags and other stuff. If you know of anyone that’s interested let me know.”
You can let him know by heading over the new forum topic, Pro Gear for Sale. It will be neat to see if anything works out for someone!
This picture has nothing to do with this post, but what’s a post without a picture? I guess it might relate due to the fact that this picture was taken with a 24-105mm f/4 L IS, the same lens that Greg is selling. LOL
