Seems like canon gear is not moving well in general on the B&S forum. Could be summer doldrums, glut of gear from switchers to nikon, or everyone's broke right now.
Some of it has to do with people wanting prices which I would consider very high for what is being sold. A year back a new 24-70 was going for less than $1,300 where now I see people asking for $1,400 used in some cases and then saying this is NET to me. or people looking for $350 plus fees for their 50mm 1.4 when a brand new one costs $359 shipped. Those people who price fairly for stuff that can be universally used, see their stuff go quickly.
I've been watching prices lately for the higher end cameras vs what I have and while the 1D3 is a fine camera, it is two generations old, so even lower end stuff being sold may have better features at a cheaper price. Plus, with a lot of people upgrading from the 1D4 and 5DII you have one generation old models going for good prices.
Like the guy at work here told me... bodies drop like a rock, but glass holds value.
Yes, there are a lot of high expectations - but elader's prices are fine. I've seen a lot of 5d2's, 7d's, and even solid glass like the 17-55 and 100 macro sitting for days at discount prices.
