ls the used price of 35mm f2 lenses dropping with the new 40mm f2.8 coming onto the market? Hong traders are selling the 40mm for about £140 thats cheaper than the used prices on ebay for a 35mm f2. Its also much cheaper than a new one.

An f/2 lens is a little different from an f/2.8 - even ignoring the focal length difference.
There are other differences too, but the point is that both compete for the same buyers, to some extent.
l never shoot wider than 2.8 with my 35 f2, so no difference for me. The price is what interests me, a new 40 STM is cheaper than a used 35 f2. Looks a good lens, people will go for it. Will the price of a used 35 f2 come down as a result? l certainly think so.
they are selling at that price for a good reason
Plus we are a free port and have no sales tax
