A Perfect Christmas Gift!

We are selling some of our old lenses that were replaced
by new versions. Many of these lenses saw very little use,
so some are like new. At any rate, we're thinking some of
these lenses would be great 'starters' for friends or family
thinking of getting into photography with great glass
at a very affordable price. Check out the link!
