I have the opportunity to buy two lens used but in mint condition...and i want to get general consensus on whetehr in the UK they are a good deal or not...as I am not to hot with used prices.

Canon 24-105mm f4 IS £550

Canon 70-200 f2.8 non IS £600

or the pair for £1000.

Thoughts please.

I don't know the prices in the UK, but when doing the conversion rate, the lens would be sold for 85% of the new cost. The separate prices are almost the brand new cost. You might look around at the prices because, I think, you guys pay more than us in the states.

Both Fred Miranda's site and "Digital Photography on the Net" have used equipment boards. And there are others too. Check the prices there to compare.

Looking at the second hand american sites and the buy and sells on Fred and miranda etc the deal I am getting is pretty normal so I think I'll go ahead with the purchase. Their orignal single price is not so inviting but the combi deal for both is.
