it's barely used & local.
maybe i'll offer him $450.
Sounds about right. I would not pay more than $475 for that lens.
offer 425 and see if they'll bite since you're local. odds are they'll settle for 450
that's probably what i'll do.
$450 isn't bad for that much reach. it'll go well with my 17-70mm, and will be great to bring to S. Africa next year.
thats about the going rate... i'm looking at one myself
I got mine for $400 shipped, but it was missing the hood
see if you can lower it to at least 450
bitchass already sold it.
move out to chicago
425 is a good price, 475 is pretty normal imo
It's still what $560 new?
Personally, I'd hold out for the IS version.
Yeah but but used market sucks for it, so prices are generally pretty low.
i'm debating between the is and non is version... i'm hoping to do a lot of sports, probably on a monopod. who knows.
what's a good price for the 2.8?
The IS does not really benefit sports shooters unless they are getting creative in IS 2 mode for panning. Can't say the 70-200mm f4L is really monopod worthy either, it is pretty small and I never got tired running around NCAA FB games with it.
I sold my mint 70-200mm 2.8L 3 years ago for $950 shipped. I have seen them anywhere from $800-1000 depending on date code and cosmetics as well as glass condition. If you look hard enough you can find lightly used ones for ~$850, dipping to $800 and you start seeing glass imperfections. $1k is just overpriced.
cool thanks man.
new around $1100...friend of mine just got the sigma 70-200 f2.8 its pretty nice for a few hundred less
