Thanks Wasu, that's what I suspected…

Strangely, there are a few of these on Ebay and they still sell for more than the one I'm interested in, between 1,2 and 1,4 for the Mark I

Is the probability of a malfunction likely on a sample of this age?

This is a focus by wire lens that cannot be focused manually if the AF motor or linkages go. I don't think it should be worth more than 1/3rd price of a new mark II lens, even in mint condition.

I'm pretty sure Canon will not service this lens any more, and 3rd party shops may have extreme difficulty getting any parts.
