I got mine refurbished from canon direct. I paid about 800. I'm adverse to buying used as well, but I don't like paying full price for new either.
135L is so darn good. Congrats to you. Have fun with it.
Why not put another $100ish and get new lens....I just don't get it
I bought a used 85L II on CL for $1525. The lens is 1yr old, perfect condition, just like new. Came with everything box and sale receipt from best buy.
It'd be more than 1000 after sales tax. Even if bought online from out of state it'd still be 970. There's no way I would pay extra just to have a canon box. A refurbished lens is just as good. The one year warranty makes it even more attractive.
