The lens comes with front and back caps and cheap hood. I do not have the original box nor do i have the registration card. I will post more lens pics tonight for you.

The glass is clean. No scratches or marks. Works great. Used on my 7D. Autofocus works fine, never any issues with sharpness.

I have it priced cheap because i have no box and it's an older lens. If you are looking to actually take pictures with the lens rather than OF the lens, it's a great deal!

Great choice guy's, just no good to you when you decide to go up to a FF body!

Enjoy the new lense(s)

I love my 17-40L for that!

This is relevant to me. Wow. I had no idea that was even an option. And the wire inside of the UV filter, genius.

Kinda dangerous since you can damage the mirror on the full frame if you zoom wider than 12mm
But looks like there is a way to physically stop the lens from going that far
It may be worth a try
And it is easy to reverse the process to restore the lens back to normal

I rented the Canon 10-22 and I own the Sigma 10-20.

I must've received a sharp copy, but either way I don't feel like I missed anything aside from saving $350. I would've preferred the Sigma 8-16mm but I didn't feel like dropping the cash
