I'm beginning my segue to full frame, and selling my APS-C lenses. 

I bought this lens used, but it's in like-new condition.  No signs of use, which is not to say that I didn't use it.  It's a really great lens.  Comes with everything - caps, hood, pouch, box, whatever's in the box, etc.

This is the widest rectilinear lens available for APS-C cameras.  Here are some shots I took with it the other night:

Looking for $450 shipped to the CONUS.  PayPal gift, or add $14 for regular PP.

Wow, those are some remarkable photos. Was there any post work done to compensate for barrel distortion?

I have been looking for a wide lens but this one was only considered for a short time. Not sure why now. How is this lens for landscape and /or astral use?  I may have dropped them from the list for one or both of those needs.

I ran most of them through PTLens, using its built-in profile for that lens/focal length.  It does a nice job of correcting the distortion.  But it's not too bad to begin with.  You only really notice it in shots like this where there are a lot of lines.

The camera was leveled for all of these shots.

More examples, some of which had keystone adjustments in PTLens:
