Bought mine used on Amazon for $1,050 in March 2010. It was a steal. Amazon has them used now for $1,250.

for example? actual street price?

Mark II is $2300 at Adorama... they're taking pre-orders.

There were some significant rebates on the "Mark I" that expired a few weeks ago, maybe those were the lower prices OP was seeing.

I just got the spring catalog from bh. 24-70 lists 1300. All other lenses are same in catalog as online. So the price increase to me seems like a spur of the moment decision

Wow .... That's good - I got one for 1100 from canon with the 15% - and it was refurbished. But according to the date code it was only 2 months old.....

Creeping up? I partly sold mine for $1,050 yesterday!! Glad I got rid of it. Once they start shipping v II and stop selling v 1, the price is going dooooown.
Besides, it just sat there being unused once I started using my 16-35L II

Let's look at facts which I obtained from B&H catalogs (2007, 2011) and old copies of photographic magazines (2003, 2005), and web archives (2002):

2002 24-70mm f/2.8L = 220K Yen (US$1656 at 2002 exchange rate), $2100 Canon USA Launch
2003 24-70mm f/2.8L = $1149 B&H
2005 24-70mm f/2.8L = $1349 B&H
2007 24-70mm f/2.8L = $1139 B&H
2011 24-70mm f/2.8L = $1399 B&H
2012 24-70mm f/2.8L = $1399 Canon USA MSRP

2012 24-70mm f/2.8L II = $230K Yen (US$1732 at 2012 exchange rate), $2299 Canon USA Launch

So, compared to the 2002 Launch price, the MkII lens is priced very reasonably.

What isn't accounted for is the considerable difference between Japan Home Market price vs. CanonUSA price, which is lifted by 27% above (2002) what one would expect from the monentary conversion rate. Perhaps it is to account for smoothing of prices in spite of monetary exchange rate fluctuations.

We do observe a considerable drop from MSRP in 2002 to the actual street price in 2003; there are ups and downs in price over the years. It will be interesting to observe the eventual street price of the 24-70mm f/2.8L II over time, to compare.

That's insane that lens price dropped almost $1000 after one year. :shock: That must have been hard for the early adopters.

Probably due to supply and demand since the version II is not out yet. I used to have a 24-70 but sold it in 2009 for $1,300. Kind of miss the lens but not really since I have a collection of primes now :)

Here in the UK the Mk1 is retailing for around $1,300, the MK2 on the other hand is going for anything above $3,700!

Stupid price indeed!:eek:
