    Relax Dan... It's only PC madness!.
    For pretty realistic street prices have a look at dirtcheapcameras.com.au.
    Almost walk in store will equal or beat their advertised prices... Just show
    them a printout.

    Can you give me an example of someone bidding more than Canon's RRP? I
    haven't seen it - usually normal second hand Canon lenses go for about
    40-70% of RRP on Ebay.

    Overseas is a little different... you most likely avoided paying GST
    because you travelled?

    yeah it happens
    i have sold minolta lenses for more than i paid...gotta love it when there's
    a bidding frenzy on your own item, but it's a serious pain when it happens
    on something you want to buy.
    the worst though is when ppl bid to a near-new (sometimes more than new if
    they're silly enough) price for 2nd-hand items days before the auction is
    finished. those ppl should be banned from all auctions :P

    Daniel, the "need to win" appears to be more important to some e-bay
    purchasers than the actual amount of money they pay out. Yes, some are
    plain stupid.
     
    a shop 

    From a brief survey, I think you could be pleasantly surprised at the prices
    from Camera Action Camera House, Elizabeth St. Melbourne
    www.cameraaction.com.au

    Their on-line prices look to compare well with Canon (of four lenses i
    compared, one had the Canon RRP, the other three were cheaper). Prices in
    the shop may be a bit higher. I have bought most of my photographic gear
    from them, and have found them very pleasant and helpful at all times.

    And there is always dirtcheapcameras
    http://svc003.bne012i.server-web.com/catalogue/dirtcheap/cache/header-306public__0-0.html?cache=no
    which looks to be lower still.

    there's 

    I have sold many used items for more than new. It has to do with how hard it
    is to obtain.

    You can still avoid paying GST even if you buy here before your holiday. You
    just need to provide the receipt and the item at customs along with your
    flight ticket.

    No, you could buy whatever you want duty free... theres only a $400 limit on
    taking things back into the country OFFICIALLY..

    With things like cameras, its virtually impossible to get busted bringing
    them back in without claiming GST because you could just say you bought it
    ages ago and you took it for some happy snaps.. its difficult for them to
    prove it was bought duty free.

    But I said RRP, not the cheapest online store in Australia.

    The 50mm f/1.8 is $179 RRP
    the 90-300mm is $319 RRP
