Sounds like I'd be checking with some independent repair shops.

One thing that really annoyed me about Canon is that the Newport News repair facility, which is like 30 minutes from work, didn't accept drop off items. You had to mail your **** in, even if you lived next door. Even if you we're a CPS member at that. Stupid.

Really can't wait to get some more glass, it's driving me nuts just shooting with a fiddy. Btw, thanks for the suggestion on the 24-70, but I'm just not a midrange zoom guy. I like a mild zoom for wide angles, and I keep a 70-200 for ball field versatility, but I'm 100% a prime lens shooter otherwise. Given that I am in a situation where I have any control over what's going on in front if me, I'll shoot primes every time.

I'd be interested to see what an independent shop came back with. The 80-200 AFS is rumored to be very expensive for any fix.

$1100, neg. It may have even sold by now it it wasn't for POTN's stupid anti-bumping process. I've been bumping it daily on Miranda though, but there's a ton of people dumping Canon gear it seems.

Yeah really, aside from the lens sample threads I really do hate that place.

The one that really stumps me is my 300L. It's about as clean a pre-IS 300 as you're going to find, case and all for $2200. Haven't had the first nibble on it.

I have a 200 f/2L with case and everything, probably used less than 10x. It's all about finding the buyers. Primes are better glass, yes, but people like versatility. 70-200L is probably the most popular higher end glass because you can use it in nearly any scenario. A 200 or 300 prime is much more specialized.

Keep in mind people are strapped for cash before Christmas, plus the market is flooded with Canon gear.

FM sucks for BST. I had so many welchers it was pathetic.

Had somebody email me asking for more photos of the 1D.
