~$2300 I think. Less if you go non-authorized or import at the risk of the warranty.

I bought a new one from B&H last week for 2050, plus 2% reward from B&H.

Canon, Nikon, Sony. Too many gears, too little time.

It's only been a few months since it was available as a new product in limited quantity. There can't be too many used up for sale yet.

I've been looking at the price this is lens very close. I want one but I'm waiting for the price to drop. It's still in the 2k price range. Even used they go for almost 2k anyways.

One reason why I'm not on the 24-70II bandwagon yet, is because there isn't enough reviews by hobbyist yet to justify the price. I'm sure once the price drops there will be more reviews on this lens.

Your going to be lucky if you find one used. I've only seen one listed on E-bay or Craig's List since last summer and what they wanted you might as well purchased a new copy. I can't see the price dropping below 2k for a while as well as these have been selling.

I'm a hobbyist too and this has become my favorite lens. If you didn't have a Mark I and had the $$$ it's definitely worth it. If you have a sharp Mark I (like I did) it was a much tougher decision to get a Mark II. I was lucky and was able to sell the Mark I for more than I originally paid for it so I only had to shell out a little less than 1k to get the Mark II. On a 5D III I could definitely see the difference between the two lenses when performing side by side testing. I am very happy I upgraded and don't regret it one bit.

On a side note the guy I purchased my 35L and 50L from sold them both to me to get the 24-70 ii. I'm thinking about doing the same thing...

My 24-70L I is pretty sharp, but I want a II just because my v.1 is soft on the corners. The center is pretty sharp, but when your doing portraits the corner or edge doesn't really matter. LOL.

I'm thinking about the same thing Adam. Zoom lens are just more versatile compare to prime. Especially when your working for cash, but that's just my opinion. To have all of the focal length from 24-70mm just as sharp as a prime lens is a must have IMO.

You just missed a sale on adorama and bh. It was $2049 for a few days until yesterday morning. I got mine at adorama for $2049 - $61.47 (3% mrrebates) = $1987.53.
There's also 2% adorama rewards ($40.98).
