    Thanks to everyone who replied to my earlier post. Unfortunately, I've had
    no luck with any of the suggestions. So now it may be time to bite the
    bullet and go for the 16-35mm. I won't hold my breath for a S/H one, so
    where is the cheapest place the find one of these?

    So far the best price I've found is from dirtcheapcameras.

    Any pointers would be much appreciated

    Sting.

    If you're feeling brave, you could try American Ebay, I've seen plenty
    there at lower than Australian prices (I hardly ever see good lenses on
    Australian Ebay.)

  4. Or try http://www.pbase.com/hugoso/items_for_sales - I just bought a
    Sigma 15-30 off him, and I know several people who think he's great,
    including a mate who just bought $3K of lenses off him...

    Sting,

    there's a 17-35 2.8L in the Melb Trading post
    http://ww.trading-post.com.au/main.asp?State=VIC

    Do a search for 'cameras galore'. The guy's name is Trevor and his phone no
    is in the ad. He's a photographer that sells new & used gear also. I just
    bought a new 10D pro kit from him a few days ago (1st purchase from him) and
    found him good to deal with. He did mention the 17-35 when I picked up the
    camera but I'm waiting on my 16-35 to arrive from the US...

    In case you're wondering, no, I don't know him. I found his ad in the
    Trading Post myself a couple of weeks ago. Some others in the group be have
    feedback too?

    Also... Michaels on Elizabeth St. has a used 17-35 for only (wait for it...)
    2499!

    Good luck.

    Hi Lionel,

    if you didn't get through PBase, then try this one
    http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/34060
    same guy, I am the one Mic refered to, HugoSo, has been very impressive to
    deal with - everything was promt and delivered as promised - I think he even
    offers better service then your local shop does!

    and he saved me 55% :)

    best of luck

    Henrik

    PS: tell him Henrik Tived and MicCullen send you!!!
