But $1000 is a lot to pay for a lens that isn't good for much beyond shooting bugs.I paid $500 for a pristine used copy.
That's fantastic. I just saw your other post about buying and selling on Craigslist.
The 65mm macro should be a great lens to by used, because of its specialty status. A lot of people probably buy it without realizing how challenging it can be. And then, as a buyer, I don't necessarily have to compete with a lot of people in the used market. Most people who buy a bug lens probably aren't tight on cash, and thus buy it new (rather than used). Well, that would be my guess, anyway. ;-)
