So what happened to the usual plethora of Canon Refurb lenses?

Usually, this link has 3 pages that you can choose to view as a single page.
Recently, this is a single page and not that many at that.

What gives?

They stopped listing things that they don't have in stock, and I think they cleared out most of their stock with their repeated sales during the holidays.

A bit OT but I find it funny that the 40mm pancake is $10.00 more right now (159.99) than a new one from B&H (149.99) and even worse Canon charges you tax and shipping which bring it to almost $40.00 more to buy a refurbished one.

Thanks

Remember Canon was originally pricing this lens at $200 so going by that someone might think it's a good deal.

There is no surprise here. This is case for most of the time, particularly for non-L lenses. Canon refurbish pricing is pretty straight forward. 20% of list price. It does not matter what other places sell for. Most of the time, especially when there are rebates, refurbish can cost more than new. Refurbish lenses can become attractive though when there is additional 20% off( and the new ones are not heavily discounted). But, non-L refurbish lenses usually should get additional 30-50% off to become attractive.

Check back in another month or two. They seem to do a sale every three months to six months.

Surprised it sells so well used for $135-140 with 150 retail price. Never understood why someone wouldn't spend $10 more for return policy and full warrantee.

Agreed. Saving 10% on 70-200ii is one thing, but when it's $10 I will go new.
