Re: Canon 500mm F4 IS I

I bought a new one (grey import) for just over £5K delivered in September last year. Wish it had been $5K but that's the UK for you. Incredibly Mifsuds have been asking £5.5K for used ones. They seem to be going up slightly in price (over here at least) but probably because the version IIs are still stupidly expensive.

Yes - I bought my mint used copy in Spring 2011 (£4300), and within the last few months have seen significantly higher prices asked for one in similar stated condition. No idea why, but perhaps long lenses were needed for the Olympics? And supply of the expensive Mk II versions has been delayed. (Mifsuds, a UK based dealer, is currently asking for used copies of this lens, and appears to not have any on offer.)
