A Used Price List of Canon EF Telephoto Lenses

These are used prices for Canon EF mount telephoto lenses in good condition. It covers lenses with the best availability. It is not a complete list of all lenses.

Zoom/prime preference and a budget will narrow down options to a handful of lenses.

I haven’t gone through and checked for teleconverter compatibility.

It has an MSRP of $25,999.

A BP-21 battery is required to power the zoom and AF.

Buying used is a good way to save several thousand dollars.

I’m looking forward to trying to find a more expensive lens.

There’s more than this. I just haven’t gotten around to them yet.
