used/ebay lens prices and Canon rebates?
I have purchased and sold on ebay for years in fact I purchased my 24 TSE II used on ebay and while I believe in theory the prices will reflect Canon's prices it might be a guideline. I purchased mine used with a buy it now price lower that I would have bid it up to so set your limit and watch the auctions. I have seen used lenses go for more than Canon's referbs were going for on Canon's web site with a 90 day warranty and what I personally believe is when buyers have money in their paypal account it is look at differently than money out of their bank account or credit card. I have sold items that I believed were worthless and that does influence how much I am willing to spend on items purchased.
