I sure hope someone from here got that F* 600mm!!

That was something you don't see often... someone around Toronto was selling a F* 600mm with accessories, in decent shape. Asked price : 150$...

You read right. someone didn't know how to use Google I guess I contacted the seller saying the lens was underpriced and that I'd like to be given the chance to make a better offer, but I probably was not the only one, because the ad was pulled. Honestly that's a good thing, I don't like to see plain robbery.

But still, such a lens, so rare I've never seen one listed before. I would have liked just to press the shutter button once with it mounted.

Wouldn't it be ironic if a Canon user had buyed it for his 5D and cut its aperture lever?

The ad has been taken down now. My gut tells me it's legit....seriously, where else would you get photos of this thing to make the ad?

Likewise, hope someone got it here. I check Kijiji religiously almost a couple of times a day....but picked the wrong day to skip.

Looks like it's back up for sale or trade but I don't see any photos. Listed from Ontario.

Edit: There was also this thread about it a few days back.

My thoughts also.

I believe someone must have contacted the seller saying he would offer 4000$, and that got her thinking... and now she'll sell it to a camera store locally. That's what I would do if I started figuring things out...
