BVI on eBay has them for $750ish area. If you combo it with a fast 50mm, your set with a nice GP kit for around 1K$.
I do have a 50mm prime...the f/1.8...along with a few other primes 28mm f/1.8, 40mm f/2.8, 100 f/2 macro. I saw the BVI/GID posts...and those are exactly what I'm seeing from local Craiglist posts. Does anyone pay full retail for these things???
With the 5D mkiii and the 6D launch, there have been a crap ton of 24-105's in the market.
If you look at the price for used 24-105's from amazon (which is how you have to sell new canon products), the price was pretty stable around 900 for quite a while, and then it started to decline.
March 2012 was the release date for the 5D mkiii.
September 2012 was the release date for the 6D.
February 2012 was the release date for the 24-70 f/2.8L mkii
Between July '11 the used price for the 24-105 has dipped from $950 to around $650 (though I think that is a bit of an outlier and the real price is $700).
If/when the 24-70 f/4L IS becomes packaged as the kit lens, I think the 24-105 may rebound in price. It is still a really good lens and it doesn't really deserve this fate.
