People are selling these on craiglist for 1400.00-1500.00.

This lens doesn't hold it value anymore.

The lens was released in January 2010, almost 8 years ago. $1,400 for an older copy would seem like a pretty good deal for the seller. I bought mine new in late 2011 for < $2K so that's less than $100 year for the "rental" if I were to sell it today.

Considering you can buy brand new from an authorized U.S. dealer for $1659 with no tax do you think that $1500 is really that cheap?

I paid $1,450 used for my copy two years ago. I highly doubt I'd have to take much of a bath on it if I had to unload it tomorrow.

I can see where you're coming from. It was $1,650 on the used market for many years.

That sounds about right to me. Canon sells it for $1679: https://shop.usa.canon​.com …28l-is-ii-usm-refurbished (external link)

My first thought, exactly. Then it occurred to me that Craigslist does not constitute a used gear marketplace. I buy/sell a lot of used gear, in a lot of places. CL is populated by two main types of gear sellers. One wants to move unwanted/unused gear and lists it for an attractive price. The other thinks the 7D he paid $1600 for 8 years ago is still worth $1400. I'm guessing the OP would be happier if CL sellers listed the lens for $2200.
