    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.

    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.
