| p.1 #15 · Interesting how when prices on refurbished Canon lenses go up.... |
As of mid December of last year I've noticed pricing on refurb lenses to be a bit wacky, one example as of late was the 100L IS macro. Just within the last 45 days it has changed from the current 'in-stock' price of $839, last week during the 15% speshul it was always 'out-of-stock' and priced at $711.
If you casually track a few lenses, the L's in particular, their pricing varies quite a bit, often random without any specials; there doesn't appear to be any reason like 'holiday pricing' involved, they just seem to change.
The bodies do this as well but not as often; currently when in stock the 5d3 is staying steady and has not changed from it's $2380 since it fell to that price point, before that it was 2799.
For those interested in the 100L IS macro, you can get it slightly cheaper; 20 bucks, but new at B&H at the moment; for me in CA there is no tax or shipping, plus you get 2% back in rewards, it's not a lot back but it's a NEW lens not a refurb. I checked pricing on another fav lens of mine, the 28 f1.8 and a new one at B&H is cheaper as well...
Refurb pricing is kind of odd, sometimes there are amazing deals, you just have look often to get lucky spotting them and don't hesitate when you do, as others have pointed out...they go 'out-of-stock' quickly.
