I'm in Canada. Here the retale price of 70-200 MK II is about $2600 after tax.
Now I have a chance to buy a used copy which was purchased earlier last December, with warranty until Dec 12th, essentially 5 months warranty, for $2k, with the accessories.

Is it a ok deal?

Thanks!

i think its about the same... pre-owned one and used one it's about the same thing... just considering you ain't the first user nor you bought it brand new... just the second or the third owner..

$2k is about the going rate for an excellent condition one on eBay, Amazon, and here. A lot of people ask $2100 but they sit a little longer. The ones I have watched on eBay have all gone in the $1900-$2050- range after shipping. (American dollars)
