Selling my lens Sigma 17-50 2.8 Nikon Mount (ALMOST NEW).

BH Photo sells it new for $669, I am selling it after only two shoots for almost $200 less, only $499. The lens was always used with the UV filter on. Includes original box, fabric case, instructions, uv filter, lens cap, and lens hood.

I was using this for video with the Sony FS-100, but it would work great with Sony F3, Panasonic Af100, Canon C300 and all Nikon photo cameras and DSLRS.

One week until the end of our campaign and we still need about $1300.


Meet our protagonists:
here are 4 short clips from the film

"Jayrome" ...
"Nico" ...
"Isabelle" ...
"Mark" ...

“The Other Side of the Rainbow” shows what it means to be gay, lesbian or transgender today in Berlin by portraying four individuals, who are in some way or another part of Berlin’s LGBT community, but won’t quiet fit in into the usual clichés: 22-year-old free spirit Isabelle, gay punk Nico, transgender writer and performer Jayrome and, the handicapped Mark. A parallel fifth storyline tells the background of Berlin’s gay pride and the development from on to two different parades on the same day in the city.
