    I'm looking around for a used one, and am wondering what would be considered a good price for a used one. I've found a few, but it's a tough decision, and with the $100 rebate, a new one is not much over $1300.

    Thoughts or comments greatly appreciated.

    Thank You..

    Maybe some nice Cafe' member will decide to sell(hint) lol

    There was one on the Fred Miranda Forum for $1099. I was tempted :D

    Recently? I've been looking.
     
  4. Also check sportsshooter.com, I've seen them go for as little as $800 there (although I'd be skeptical about buying from a true working pro - their equipment may take some serious punishment).

    Thanks. I'll check both today.
     
  6. I bought a new one from KEH for 1419 , it came Monday, and will get a $100 rebate. Keep the $1319 price in mind when you are ready to pay artound $1050- $1200 or more for a used one! :shock:
     
  7. Just bought my own "beast" on ebay last week. This lens is in mint condition with the case and I paid $1,006 plus $20 shipping. I looked on ebay for three months before bidding on this one. They are out there if you are patient.

    mitch

    Welcome me to the "Beast" club :D Just bought one from the FM Forum.
     
  9. Congrats, John! I think I faintly hear it calling my name, too, but I'm trying hard to resist. For now! :)

    Thanks Kevin. I hope I'm done for a while now. I now have the 10.5, 12-24, 28-70 and 70-200. Next year, I hope to pick up the 200-400VR, and I'll have as much range as I need. I've spent so much on gear this year, it's not even funny . . . :? Oh yes, and there's still the 85 mm f/1.4 . . . :shock:
