Used eBay

I would buy the used one. Though it is not a huge purchase by today's standards, and you aren't saving huge dollars, it is saving. More importantly it is a low risk entry into the used marketplace for yourself.

I have been buying and selling on eBay for over 20 years and have saved many thousands of dollars. I would not have my current lenses or camera without eBay and kijiji.

In recent years I have had better luck and better savings with kijiji. While eBay is really too expensive for a small time seller, it is still very good for buying. Make sure to include any import fees and taxes. Generally eBay is now collecting sales taxes, which was not always the case.
