Got this one during the 20% sale a little while ago. It's now my favorite zoom lens. It blew me away at a dance production with a dark stage and a 1.4 extender [facebook.com]. While taking pics of the cats in the yard today I declared that it is worth every penny. I have a lot of catching up to do to use this lens to its fullest potential.

And yup, it's beastly for handholding for an extended time and trying to fit into a camera bag. For more compact stuff w/o spending $400+ or getting an f/5.6 max ap, I've been happy with the classic 70-210mm f/4 that goes for ~$130.

Now in the process of selling the 70-200 f/2.8L non-IS version and the 70-300L IS to Adorama

I got rid of this lens and got 70-300L considering my application and use of this lens is purely outdoors for kids activities.

70-300L is amazingly impressive lens in a small package which wont break your neck and carrying around 70-300L with 5D Mk III with kids is something I can do easily when compared to 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.

Definitely agree with you there. The 70-300L is a very well-behaved and versatile tube of glass in a smallish bundle in an outdoor environment. It took some major soul-searching for me to send it for appraisal and I'm still not sure if I'm ready to part with it yet. Guess it will depend on what Adorama offers me. The main reason I sent it was to help finance my unrestrained lens shopping spree during the 20% sale.

I was thinking about trying out the 70-300 non-L or the 70-300 DO to see if I liked them, given their higher degree of compactness (sans the laudable build qualities of the L version).

I completely understand what you mean..... I've been on that path and a lens buying spree over last few years and have pretty much toned down to one prime, one zoom and one walk around. Maybe add 17-40L UWA later.

tax really kills this deal. After tax the price is $1,807.23 for a refurb 90 day lens. A brand new version is $2086 on amazon after 2% rewards and a 1 year warranty, a difference of $280. Essentially you're paying a dollar a day more in order to get a brand new lens. Also, I am unsure if the refurb lens comes with the hood and case.
Amazon discontinued the 2% cash back, unfortunately. It's currently $2129.00.

The refurbs come with the original accessories - I bought the macro 100mm IS lens last year from Canon - and it came with the hood and bag.

I have the 70-200 2.8 NON-IS and love it. A part of me wants to sell it and get this. I definitely don't need it... but would LOVE to have it Wink

IS definitely helps. I opted for the 4.0 IS over the 2.8 non IS as they're close to the same price. This one would be optimal, but like you, I'd love to have it but really don't need it.

I have sold a couple of cameras (50D and 7D) and lenses on ebay and not had a single problem. Fast payment, no returns. The items were in great shape. Ebay and paypal charge around 10% to sell...

On a side note, has anyone ever seen the 85 mm 1.2l ii or the 135 f2l refurbed available on the Canon site? Whenever I look they are out of stock.

They have them in stock every now and then, but they don't last long, especially when there's a sale.

That map indicates which states don't have a sales tax at all, i.e. if you purchase something in Oregon, you are not charged a sales tax.

Generally speaking, internet retailers only charge sales tax if they have a presence in the buyer's state and that state has a sales tax. Newegg, which is a California-based company without a presence in Texas, would not charge you a sales tax. So, whether you are charged sales tax on an internet purchase depends on 1) whether your state has a sales tax, and 2) whether the internet retailer has a presence in your state.
