p.1 #1 · suggestions for buying Canon 24-70 f2.8L mk II


I figured why not a specialized buying thread for those watching this lens anticipating purchase.

I just sold 2x of the Mk I and now have the funds for the Mk II Canon EF 24-70 f2.8L.

Can anyone post the historic pricing? I thought I heard of some getting it down into the $1800-$1900 range recently. But if you look at the graph at the bottom of the canonpricewatch.com page, it doesn't jive.

So, I realize I can watch the Buy/Sell for used, but what are predictions for the next month or so for Canon channel pricing? Has anyone had success getting refurbished directly from Canon?

Lowest I have seen is the $2049 sale over the holidays. Only saw a few used on the B&S boards so far for same price I think. Its on Ebay now under the Daily Deals for that price also but not familiar with the seller.

Edit - One used on B&S boards now for $2025

Never heard that it's gone as low as $1,800. Someone on this board mentioned there was an Amazon Gold Box deal for $1,900 shipped, but I don't know if that's before or after 2% reward on lens purchase and his 3% Chase Amazon credit card.

The lowest deal on eBay right now is $2,049, but that's from Hong Kong or China. There is one guy in Chicago/Evanston who has been selling these lenses for a bit. His lenses are listed as purchased from an authorized dealer. Right now, it's $2,099 a pop with 3-year extended warranty from Mack. It shouldn't be difficult to look it up if you're interested.

I don't need this lens at the moment, but I'm interested in getting one. I'll snag one if there is a good deal. Hopefully, it happens before March or May when I actually need it.

I have to imagine that the price on these will begin to drop in the next two to three months.

That's what I expect (hope) too.

I would hope it's price will track the Yen, which is going down.

It will eventually end up on perennial "rebate".
