How do you think this will effect the future pricing for the 580EX II, as dealers try to get rid of their existing stock?

B&H has an online quoting system that you can use.  Follow the prompts to "sell equipment".

Their process is to offer no more than 70% of current retail value for used equipment.  Nothing near what you can get thru a private sale on CL ot net on e-bay (after their fees), but that is the compromise between the "speed and convenience" of dealing with them (their sales pitch).


You will definitely not get top dollar for your gear at either Adorama or B&H.

Being a towering 5'8", that is a GREAT idea.

Hey gang, as part of the "oh, by the way" discovery process, now I need to consider a bag or pack to tote one of these monsters to/from the ball fields.


Think Tank Galss Taxi looks good, but sure there are many more option out there


What do you use?  Do you keep strap attached?


Thanks, Dan.

They look like some type of recycled plastic material.  looking for my (Dutch to English) translator button to read the description.  Fortunately, I do not do much tropical travel, but moisture is everywhere.
 
@D.Sim - did your sister ever figure out you were the "borrower"?  I have two sisters and that would have been an interesting "discussion".

@ D.Sim & xROELOFx - thanks for the feedback.  More things to consider in the process.  Leaning toward the 300 due to size and IS.  Fortunately, not a pressing timeline, so I can change my mind a few more times.

Ben-  I am trying to plan a long weekend to take the kids to DC in the fall.  Thanks for the offer.  I may take you up on that.

First off, there are two pre-IS 400mm f/2.8 L lenses from Canon.

Thanks, Ben.  Do you know when they made that production change?  most date codes I have seen look to be in late 1990's, so thinking that would be the MkII (?)
 
Really nice pix !

Thanks for the beanbag/ricebag advice...did not think about, but similar concept to upward shooting  ::) .
 
I could use tripod when sitting, but not laying down.
 
I have a buddy that will lend me a gimbal head to test drive once I make a decision.  Is a gimbal head overkill, good idea or a necessity?

Thanks, Tex.  That is one of the bigger factors in the decision between those two lenses.
 
Will keep my eyes open for 300/2.8 pricing trends over the coming weeks/months, as Paul pointed out earlier, with more second hand copies coming available due to 1D4 to 1DX migration.
