Do you prefer used or new lenses?

Just curious.

What do you look for when buying used?

Any benefit to paying more for brand new?  Peace of mind?

Which do you do and why?

The only drawback and unfortunately its a big one, is that lenses take a huge drop in resale value once they are bought for the first time (like a car) and you take the biggest hit if you resale down the road.
