For used prices, check - you should pay less on CL.  You can also check here.

Wow that spreadsheet is pretty cool! And I always watch

I'd pass on the 500/4.5L, personally. It's an electronic manual focus lens (like the current 85L).  Canon no longer services the lens, nor makes parts for it, which limits 3rd party options.  If the AF motor goes (prone to happen on these old lenses), you don't have a manual focus lens, you have an expensive doorstop/paperweight/club.

Thanks neuro, I didn't know that about certain lenses. That really sucks that you can't manual focus if it breaks.

Hey guys there's a few lenses I'm interested in that are for sale on Craigslist first is a canon 500mm 4.5L next is a canon 300mm f4L non is and last a new 16-35 2.8 version I. I'm most interested in the 500 but they all interest me for the right price. What's the value on these lenses? And I'm aware about them being older, but I am currently using a 20 year old 20-35 2.8 (which I love) and a 20+ year old 80-200 2.8(also love) thanks guys

You guys are dumb  :P :D! Funny thread!

And, until now, I kind a higher opinion of the folks here. Oh well, whatever. Bye.

Sorry we won'r hear more from you!;)

Aw sorry! Didn't think I was being remotely close to mean or harsh! You don't have to leave, this forum is so much fun!

Well, I guess my point went over your heads. I don't drive a fancy car, either. And I am sure many bought two to sell one on eBay. Understand now?

I think a 1D is still higher end than a 5D. It's like a 10 year old Mercedes S class verses a new KIA I mean that 10 year old Merc ain't too fancy anymore but it sure was he best you could get at one point. Prolly a good decision not to get the 5d3 you can prolly get one for 800 bucks in 10 years.

Must be one heck of a bday party! I bet you would be fine with the 24-70 and 70-200. Maybe rent a second body if you don't have one so you don't need to switch lenses making it way easier to capture shots that happen fast. 2.8 will be shallow enough I would assume just frame it tighter or stand back and use the tele to compress the background.

Well this explains why all the second hand 1D series cameras on eBay all look like hell. Cameras are so multipurpose!

I'm struggling to see the point of this post.   ???

Lol agreed, I was expecting more of comparison versus a short rant. I guess good thing you didn't get a 5d3! Hooray!

He acted and tested like a child. I'm not hostile towards him. I'm just calling it as I see it.

DigitalRev episodes are for entertainment, with some good, practical information shared in many of them. If you're looking for well designed, repeatable tests with detailed analysis...there are plenty of options for that elsewhere.

This is similar to someone watching Top Gear when trying to decide which car to buy. It's not meant to be serious, and if you watch it expecting it to be, you'll likely be disappointed.

Awesome! That's been my way of describing digitalrev to people top gear of cameras. That's why I watch both shows!

EOS M's are flooding my local Craigslist!!!!

Maybe I will get a quote and see how much it will cost. Hate to junk it as it still takes nice pictures.

There's one for sale locally by me for 850$ he must not be ready to let his go yet either as has them for almost half that.

Eos M white discontinued on B&H website, I kinda wanted that one. I bought the black one.
