Right now Ebay is the place to sell used lenses. I think some people are under the impression that eBay is the best place to shop and get cheap prices and deals, which it used to be, before dealers began to set up shop there, it is no longer like that.

here are my examples:
Canon 70-300 IS - bought in December 2008 $549 new from Ritz Camera
sold January 2010 $524 on eBay
loss of only $25 Its like I rented it for over a year for only $25

Sigma 10-20mm - bought June 2009 $479 new from Amazon
sold January 2010 $436 on eBay
loss of only $43 for over 6 months of use. Just can't beat that rental price.

Recently I purchased the Canon 15-85mm and the Canon 100-400L and someday they will find their way onto eBay when its time for them to go as well. I'm sure the rental fee for those two lenses won't be to much. LOL
