    Default second hand 300mm f2.8 IS MkI

    Well after having the opportunity to use one of these lenses whilst in Brisbane (thanks HEAPS Chris! ) I'm now in the market for one! Anyone know any good places for second hand gear? Besides eBay of course (I'm already actively looking there).

    Would prefer Australian, to avoid the hassles and duty associated with buying from overseas on such a purchase.

    I knew there'd be trouble if you used the 300 during our afternoon session

    Yup, like I said to you in the field that day with the hippies who thought we were Government spies, there's no turning back!

    Cameras.net sometimes have Canon stuff on the second hand page, but pretty rare. Most of the second hand delaers have folded, but there are a couple still in Melbourne. Camera Exchange is one.

    There was a near new 600mm f4 on Ebay last night, if you liked the 300mm f2.8 you'll like the 600 twice as much

    Seriouslly though, patience is a virtue, the 300's do come up regularly, but competition could be hot for them. Your other option is the photographic trader. You could get one from Keh.com, but you'd end up paying more than what they go for here, second hand prices in the US are relatively higher than here.

    Good luck with your search Adam. Reckon those 300/2.8's won't show up much s/h in Oz.........those that have them would know how good they are!!
    I used to deal with Camera Exchange when it was in the City - but is now in the 'Burbs - I see they have a 400, but no 300mm.
    If you're forced to go o/seas, KEH are pretty good. I got my Nikon 300/4 from them and they're very conservative with their descriptions. I've just had a peek, and plenty of Canon Big Glass...oh, the choices over there...

    You'll be tapped for Duty - about 11% with the fees added - I just had to give the postal carrier service a Visa card number, and all was done - arrived within a week.

    Cheers (from a Nikon user...)
