I’ve recently made a big investment in new equipment, the biggest of which is a complete switch to a Fujifilm ecosystem, for both stills and video, meaning I have no use for most of my Canon kit any more. Then as I look through the drawers, I realised there were other pieces of kit that I wasn’t really using any more for similar reason so I decided to round these up and oragnise a clearout sale to hopefully replace stuff I don’t use with stuff I do. So here’s the list. See the bottom of the post for transaction modalities. All photos were taken at the time of publishing this post.
Canon EF 35mm F/2 IS USM Lens £350
This is definitely one of my favourite EF lenses. It might not be great wide open, but stop it down to f/3.2 and the sharpness shoots well into L glass territory. This was essentially my go-to. With optical image stabilisation it’s also a good choice for video.
Canon EF 50mm F/1.8 II Lens £40
The famous Nifty Fifty, which in my case was the gateway drug to fast lenses. It’s a bit tight on an APS-C sensor camera (which makes it a fantastically good value for money portrait lens), but if you haven’t shot with a fast lens before, you should definitely give this one a try.
Canon EF 28mm F/1.8 USM Lens £250 SOLD
This is the fastest non-L wide angle lens from Canon, which is the main reason why I bought it. In the end, I thought it was a bit too close to the 35mm so I didn’t use it that much unless I really need the extra degrees of Field of View, but some of my favourite shots were taken with this lens.
Canon EF 50mm F/1.4 USM Lens £150
When f/1.8 wasn’t sufficient for my thirst of low-light shooting, I decided to upgrade the Nifty Fifty.
Canon EF-S 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 II IS Lens £40
The kit lens I got with my first DSLR, the 600D. It’s a kit lens, don’t expect stellar quality, but the range is decent, and it’s surprisingly sharp if you stop it down a bit.
PocketWizard PlusX Radio Trigger x2 £90 for the set
Great little triggers to get into using a flash off-camera. Selling them because I now use Elinchrom lights and the provided Skyport remote for my triggering needs. Batteries not included.
Hoya UV 58mm screw-on UV Filter x2 £5 each
First got these to protect the lenses, but then wasn’t happy with the flaring they sometimes caused in low-light situations. During the day though, I didn’t notice any impact on image quality, but I ultimately decided that being careful and insured was a more efficient protection for my lenses.
Hoya UV 77mm screw-on UV Filter £15
Same as above.
Canon 600EX-RT Speedlight £180
The flagship Canon speedlight. Got all the bells and whistles you might want. Selling it because I mainly use Elinchrom lights for flash and thinking of moving to a different system if I ever need small flashes. Has some scratch marks but is fully functional. The pouch isn’t the original one, otherwise comes with box and all original accessories. Batteries not included.
Atomos Ninja 2 HDMI Field Monitor Recorder £230
Bought this a little over a year ago, thinking it would be the key to getting better video footage out of the 7D. But forgot the 7D doesn’t output a clean HDMI signal, so I barely used it. And now that I’ve got a camera that outputs clean signal, I’ve upgraded to the Shogun Inferno so don’t need the Ninja any more. Comes with original box and accessories.
