    Sony SAL-1680Z Carl Zeiss Lens

    This lens is less than a month old. I bought it to try it out and compare it to the F2.8. I feel the other lens best suits me, was gonna return it but my wife decided to do a "little xmas cleaning" and threw out the original box together with the receipt that was in it!!! And the front lens cap!!! Lens has taken about 500 pictures.

    Needless to say I almost choked her to death


    Now I am going to loose nearly $200 on it because I cannot return it without receipt, and specially without the original box!

    So with that being said, Im letting it go for $600 + shipping. I just paid $802.50 for this lens on November 30th. It will include the lens, the lens OEM puch and the OEM lens hood. No original box, obviously, and no front lens cap. Absolute Mint condition!

    You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to pull something like that on the retailer.

    At first I was just trying it out since it is such an expensive lens, I was torn between this one and the 2.8. I did have a trip planed though and used it. But I would prefer the other one I was looking at.

    I always see a return policy as a "trial" period. If I dont like it I can rest assured I can return it.

    Sorry if I came off the wrong way. it's not like I go out buying stuff and returning it all the time! LOL!

    So what you are saying is that it wasn't any better than the lens that came with the camera. Going to have a hard time moving that here since we are probably the only 2 that use Sony DSLR's and I'm not buying it. Only option is eBay over and over till it sells for about $500-550.

    If your selling your Minolta "beer can" let me know. I'm saving up for a flash.

    Hell no! This lens kicks the kit lens in the ass over and over again. It is an awesome lens, dont get me wrong. I would just prefer the F2.8 and they didnt have it when i bought this one.

    Any lens with the Carl Zeiss name on it is great.
