I did a search and couldn't find any other posts about this, so I thought I'd share my find.

http://www.jcolwell.ca​/photography/lens$db/i​ndex.htm (external link)

This is a database of used lens prices, which looks to get regular updates.

It includes Canon and the non-OEM lens manufacturers. Once you read the instructions on how to decipher the chart, it can be comprehended quite easily :D It's all in USD, even though the site is Canadian.

So for all those posts asking "how much is my lens worth/is this a good deal," take a look!


Canon's Jurassic Park - 1Ds, 1D bodies
My traveling buddy: the trusty S95
Newest addition: T2i
Glass - 50mm 1.4, 40mm 2.8 STM, "the dirty 85" 1.8, 100mm 2.8 Macro, 430exII, 270ex, and more... including my favorite Lens: the 17-40mm!

Definitions:

E to E++ is Excellent or better; the lens has clean & clear optics and is fully functional, there may be external wear on the body and control rings, and maybe a little dust inside, but nothing to reduce the image quality; this category includes common condition ratings: E, E+, E++, 9, and 9+, also some E- and 8+, depending on the supplier.

M- to N is Near Mint or better; the lens is really clean, it looks barely used, and it functions perfectly, this category includes common condition ratings: M-, M, LN, N, NIB, 10-, 10, also some E+, E++ and 9+, depending on the supplier.
