I love buying used lenses. Although I don’t have many, every one I’ve bought has been used. There is an overwhelming amount of quality and crappy ones available for purchase. From eBay, to Amazon to Craigslist, it is a beautiful thing. On top of that, my SLR has an internal motor, so that knocks down the price even more, as I don’t have to get a lens that has a built-in motor if I want to auto-focus. Unless you are a pro who demands lens in perfect condition, buying used is the way to go. In fact, I’m sure there are some pros that buy used. More after the break….
