Yeah . . . amazing. The really incredible thing is that it was origianally posted with a BIN price of $1,250!!!
Somebody must be a really serious photographer.

LMAO I payed AUD$1200 for the F*300/4.5 (which I like better due to the tripod mount) only a few months ago, and that was from a usually overpried camera store..

These prices are getting silly..

Yes, Tom

I was bidding it at one stage and gave up on it (The lens condition was quite bad with close up: lots of bumps and paint losses.

But I had heard a lot of complaints from these owners of various great lenses: Too many fun bidders with the mind of "let's bid it and see how it goes"... Most of them have no zero feedbacks.

I should have taken the one you suggested to me 1 month ago: the one from new zealand for 1200 US dollars ...

My guess for the DFA 300/4.5 will be out by the end of 2008...
