I don't know how much it will go for in Australia, but in USD I've seen the lens itself sell from around 650 used here in the States. A new one at B&H sells for 730 USD I believe. The filter will also add a bit of price of course, assuming you want to sell it with the lens.

Sells for about $700 brand new, I'd say $650 with warranty/box/filter/accessories, $600 for just the lens and filter as shown. This is in USD. I really hope you didn't pay $160 for that filter, AUD or USD.

Shane, buying it locally you've unfortunately paid more than you could have gotten it for from the US, including shipping. I got mine new from B&H for US$679 + $58 shipping not too long ago, when the exchange rate was over 90c to the dollar. Selling it on the forum, you could try to have a local buy it for you close to your buying price but it may be difficult to compete with US prices for this fine lens.
