    Ebay prices for used Canon L glass! More than new!

    I mentioned this in another thread and here are examples:

    new $1659.95@b&h

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    $1114.95@b&H

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1



    I don't know why i was expecting to get some deals on used canon glass.
    Now's the time to sell and buy new stuff.

    Film photography? This term kills me. As if there's another kind!

    I've never figured out why people pay so much for L Lenses on ebay. Sometimes I just want to email the winners and ask them what the hell they're thinking.

    Can anything bad happen if you do email them? You probably wouldn't get a response, only the satisfaction of knowing that their head is banging against the wall.

    This isn't an issolated incident with canon glass - I suspect Canon mark it up, and then some shops mark it back down again (or ship grey imports which I'm totally fine with). When I was after the 55mm 1.8 prime every single one (and there were perhaps 3 a day in the UK) was >£60+postage. In then end got one new for £55 all in! (and these were all the MkII version - the MKI does go higher as it's barrel is metal).

    I've been trying for ages to get hold of a piece of toast with a picture of the Virgin Mother on it, but those newbie idiots keep running the price up to stupid levels.
