I'm thinking yes, if bought new. I'm less certain about the 50-135, but that seems at least ok. And you get the warranties - 6 yrs for the Tammy. I've seen the Tammy used here for about $350, so the $414 new seems very respectable.

Prices for the 50-135 have been all over the place. I got mine for about $750 and year and a half ago, but 3 months later it had gone up by $100. I have also seen it slightly lower as well. $800 seems reasonable. If you wait prices could go either way.

I got them both today at B & H. Shipping is free. That's nice since they are 3000 miles away.

They are good people to deal with. They price match cheaper legit prices (USA not grey), have free shipping. They have had a good return policy on used items. I've bought a lot of stuff from them.
