Used Canon 24-70 f2.8 II?

Thought I might just reach out to the community here to see if anyone knows of anyone selling this lens? I've checked Toronto+Vancouver craigslist/facebook marketplace without much success. Currently contacting people on Fred Miranda and Photography-on-the.net, though most only want to ship to USA.

Anyone know of any other options? Not many used copies for sale it seems!

Happened to just come across that too, thanks! I'll give them a call today as there isn't really any info online. I've never bought kerrisdale but rating seems good. I presume used would be a safe bet there too?

I've never bought any lenses from them before, just filters, bags and some other small items but they seem to be pretty good.
They're probably as safe as any place would be for used equipment.

Personally the only local camera stores I've shopped at are Broadway Camera, Kerrisdale Cameras and London Drugs.

Any particular reason you don't/won't use a parcel service? I get its riskier than buying from a local brick and mortar where you can see and test the lens. I use the Shell Shipping Station in Point Roberts and have used TSB Shipping in the past but then they raised their rates, or Blaine like many do. Fill up on gas too before coming back.

Even in US, not that many used 24-70 that I am seeing right now. And yeah, a bit more hesitant to buy off someone in another country and just hope everything goes smoothly...

The London Drugs on Broadway and Cambie has a small used section - you might want to give them a call as they don't have their inventory online. A new Henry's is also right around the corner from London Drugs and they might have something as well.

I see a few in the GTA on kijiji, those aren’t panning out? I’d gift card a friend to check them out though since you are west.

Checked Henrys in Van, they said only place had was Scarborough (1), but that it was listed at $1900 (crazy when brand new is $2150!)

I didn't find any other locals, and a few other remote ones didn't really pan out but I ended up going with the only one from Kerrisdale Camera - great staff, easy busy... cheap Almost seems too good to be true! :o
