About a week ago I got a Like new Canon 24-70 2.8 L on Craiglist for $800! June 2009 build date. Couldn't beleive the guy was selling for that. Got to try it out and it seems to work great and sharp. Not a scratch or wear mark to be seen, both end caps, and soft case. I had it bought about an hour after it showed up on CL. Even if I decide to go with the MII when it really shows up I don't think I will go backwards on this copy. I have used it some now and it looks good to my eye.
