Holy crap! Just noticed this thread! 70-300 IS USM is still available. Best price I've *ever* seen. If I didn't already own the 55-250mm II, I'd jump on this one.
For sure. These are typically the prices that you pay for these lenses used with no warranty. And these are canon certified refurbished lenses with full warranties. I paid like $230 or so for my 18-135mm used like a year ago - now I could get it even cheaper with full factory warranty - crazy.

$259 is a great deal on the refurbished 70-300. I paid $379 + tax for that same refurbished lens this summer from Adorama.

Got one 70-300 mm for 259+tax... Great deal

I'm now tempted to jump on the 70-300, but am waiting to bite at the 50mm f/1.4, if it pops in stock or ever drops to $250. Anyone with that lens with recommendations?

Do you shoot f/f or crop? I know I've pushed this in several threads, but I just the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 on sale and have been very happy with how it performs on my 600d. I feel like 30mm makes a lot more sense (at least for indoor shooting) on a crop. If you shoot f/f, then I think you def'ly want the 50mm.

Got one without thinking much for $259.

Do canon refurbs indicate anywhere that they are refurb? Do they come in white Box etc?

I got one for 259 plus tax, thanks a Lot for the posting.

@jumponit, I'd consider pulling the trigger on the 50mm f/1.4 now on Amazon. It's the lowest price it's ever been, and for something that's been selling on Amazon for almost 5 years now that's saying a lot. Resale prices are also all hovering around the ~$300-$330 range for lightly used/like new lenses, so it's unlikely the price will drop much farther.

Also, I'd consider looking at the new 40mm f/2.8 too -- its optics are actually comparable or better than the 50mm f/1.4 in many (for full-frame cameras)/most (for crop sensors) shooting situations while being half the cost.

Bumping a great deal for anyone looking to upgrade his/her carry-around or telephoto lens.

Sweet!! ordered the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS for $309 with shipping and taxes. the best deal for that kind of a lens!

I'm not on full frame but on crop (canon T3i), and not as impressed with the 40mm f/2.8 (although the price is great)
posted: Dec. 18, 2012 @ 9:31p
which one works better for crop frame? how about 35mm f/2?

Showing in stock at the moment for $259. They added a page of lenses today but as usual the 100mm macro was out of stock by the time I got on there. One of these days I will be quick enough to get that lens.

Depends on what you want to do.
I have a t3i and the 50 f/1.4. Great lens but I had to be across the room for my shots - was too tele for my taste. Picked up the 28 and it's perfect (for me). Family gatherings, etc.
