I find that the prices for brand new lens and body in retail shops is quite close for those who posted in CS, why is that so? Eg: Canon F1.8 50mm is retailing at $125nett with Canon 15mths warranty and yet in CS buy/sell is between $100-$120 "2nd hand" with and without warranty.
Yet people still buy? So curious about it because of the price difference is not by alot for 2nd hand compared to brand new.
Another eg: 2nd hand Canon EF 17-85mm F4-5.6 IS USM $550-$600 (CS), Brand New $590 (retail)
Would be nice if anyone can give a logical advice. no hard feelings to sellers.
