    Looks the same to me...

    A word of caution for a few things:

    The new one will come with a warranty (three years + passport). This one will have a duty charge on top of the auction price if you don't live in Canada. Also, there's still a few hours to go in the auction and the price will likely go higher.

    Anyways, good luck!

    Thanks. Anyone else can confirm they are the same? What is the usual market price for this lens?

    Same lens and probably my favorite lens on a M8, or any M. I don't know the current market price, but if you search the completed auctions on Ebay, you will get a good idea.

    There usually isn't any duty between the USA and Canada. If you have it shipped via a courier such as UPS, or Fedex, there could be a brokerage fee for clearing it through customs.

    I did a quick completed search and they look like they go for from $1,500 to $1,700. About the same price range they have held for the past number of years. I think I bought mine used for that price range eight or ten years ago.
