Yeah, as with the recommendation for the 100-300 Sigma, not fair to compare used to new prices. That is a $950 lens. The Sigma 150-500 can be had for the same price, with OS. None of the lenses considered, with the exception of the 70-200 f/2.8 +TC, sell used frequently enough to consider them generally available. Also, it pays to be highly selective in buying used via Fleabay and KEH does not often have any of these. And KEH prices are close enough to new that it does not make sense to me. Conclusion: I'm going to buy new unless I stretch for the Nikon 70-200VRII +TC 2.0III.
