I've searched everywhere for months, including this site for an used copy of this lens but still with no luck. I long for this lens but can't afford to pay $1000 + taxes through the border (I'm in Canada).

Does anyone know of any particular places I would have luck finding a used copy of this lens? eBay isn't an option because I'm not able to use Paypal.

start calling high end camera stores with good used selections and see if they will ship it to you? I know Allen's Camera here in PA has tons of different used lenses but do not list them online... i'm sure you could figure out 10 or 20 good stores, call or email them and see if they have it.... although it might just be worth it to buy a new one as used lenses only sell for 20% less than new ones or even less from a high end dealer....
why are you "not able to use paypal?"

Besides the one Henry posted at B&H there are a couple available over on FM. I listed one here about a week and a half ago and it didn't last long.

Ah thanks for the link. Unfortunately the price is not too much lower to warrant buying used.. I've seen some $800 or less ads on POTN here but they've all sold out.

I'm not yet the age to do so, and close friends have had bad experience.

Get the $850 EX one. The only reason to go higher than EX from KEH is because they don't have an EX available at the time.
