Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens for $83 (limit 5; maybe Imported/Grey)

To Los eBay Deals we geaux, where we find the Canon 50mm f1.8 II SLR lens offered for $83 with free shipping, in new condition, by Red Tag Camera, with a limit of five per buyer.

Still for many this may be a reasonable risk, a double figured simple prime lens is a much smaller risk than a complicated four figures lens. But it’s up to you – we blog, you decide!… Separately there is a promotion that saves you $5 for every 3 eligible items you buy, all offered by Red Tag Camera – you will see this offer right above the product picture over there…
