Re: What is the right price for a used XF 200mm f2?

I think a lot of used prices are nuts.

mpb has two of the 200’ in and are asking £4400 or so...

which is in effect the EX vat price of a new lens...

from our perspective that’s bonkers...and tbh I think even amateurs should walk.  
it’s one of the reasons I rarely buy used.. the prices are just too high,  and I can buy new instead.

Price is always going to be condition driven,  but bear in mind,  lots of users of a lens of this nature will be professionals (certainly for the Nikon’s and cannons..) and as such will be vat registered.    So that price will be what they paid.  
somehow that doesn’t sit right for me...  if your keen as an amateur to get one,  and want one in as new condition,  then fill your boots... but remember,  I can actually buy one new for that price..

If it has any use imho it should be marked down at least another 10% off the ex vat price.. your not getting the original warranty,  and it’s not a new lens.
