This has been asked a number of times I'm sure, but I haven't found many good first hand stories on the subject...
I'm in the market for the 35L but can't seem to come across a nice used copy for a good price, so I'm thinking about just buying a brand new one. I understand the differences between the two types of items. Although some folks say Canon will service the lens even if it is Grey Market - as long as you have proof of purchase from an authorized dealer (I plan on going through B&H).
Is the $100 price difference worth it? Or for someone so expensive just don't mess around and for the USA version only. Has anyone ever bought a Grey Market lens and had to send it back to B&H for servicing? Or did you just send it to Canon and that worked?
Although if you see this and want to sell me your used 35L that's fine too
