FWIW, looking at my local CL today there's a 300/2.8L IS (MkI) for $4200 and an 800/5.6L IS for $11K (overpriced, IMO).
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Wish I could see nice gear like that on my end of CL.

It's not uncommon here in Texas. I found nothing I wanted so far today. :|

Ya out here in Nevada there are mostly Lenses and cameras people bought on a whim and did not want. I live in Tahoe and see A LOT of people buy 7D's and realize they got in over their head and try to sell them to recoup on CL. Back when the Mk3 came out there were at least one to two a week for $3000 that someone bought.. and did not like.

Thanks!  It's good to see other people are trying to sell through Craigslist.  I looked again sorting by price and did find a 300 2.8 for 3K and a 200 2.0 for 5K within the greater LA area.  I also found a couple of cinema cameras for 11-15K so it's not as exceptional as I thought.

If you decide to sell it let me know.

5k for that 200 isn't a bad deal if its in good shape.

I will.  I go back and forth.  On one hand the much lighter weight is really nice. On the other hand if I get a 600 how often would I go to the 400 instead.  I'll definitely let you know if I do decide to sell.

I know the feeling. With my 7D being toast now I just lost my "600 and 300"

I live in the Reno/Tahoe area and drive to LA once a month for work.
