    My pick is "Crayfish Lunch". The subject and pose are both very good and this is also a technically challenging scene with a black/white bird and a bright background. Nicely done!

    I think it is hard to make reasonable used lens market evaluation during the covid area. Given how well the EF lenses work on the new cameras I would predict lens value will surely fall versus 2-3...
