Finally broke down and got myself one :). Love the images that came out of this lens. However, as a travel lens, it's hard to carry it around since lens swapping is more hassle than my Sigma 85.

Looking to pick one of these up. I can get a brand new one for £1275 (grey import with seller warranty) or a 7 year old one for £1100 which has just had a full service by Canon including dismantling, cleaning, re-assembly and calibration and is in superb cosmetic condition.

Not sure if I should just pay a little extra and get the new one or go with the 2nd hand one as its been serviced this month. Thoughts?

Hard to say bit I'd be tempted to get the recently serviced one simply because it's tried and true

Turns out the lens had some mould in it pre-service. I don't want to take the chance with it now even though it's been cleaned and re-sealed. I'll either buy new or buy a different second hand one

Eddie, I bought mine from eBay 6 months old for £1,125 in August... so you can certainly get better deals than the £1,100 for a 7 year old one imho.

Thanks Chris. I really don't "need" this lens but the want sure is there

Looks great Chris. Is this part of your Gotham series?

On a lighter note, here's one of my wife's 2nd 20th Birthday :). We had a fabulous lunch at the Plough Inn in Rede, near Bury St Edmunds in England. The timing was perfect as this was the last day they had their Christmas decor up. They sure made for great bokeh balls. However, with the 85L, I could not get enough field of view to capture the bokeh balls. So this is a 10 shot Brenizer with the 85L at 1.8, which equates to something like a 47mm at 1.0. Hope you like it.
