Warranty Q and "ever bought a lens from..."

This website: Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Lens for Pe [1847] - $249.50 :, The Art of E-commerce

It has the Tamron 28-75/2.8 for $249. That seems way too cheap to be legit. I want this lens for as cheap as I can reliably get it but this seems off. I know the saying "if it's too good to be true..." but I thought I'd check to see if anyone has bought from them?

Also I looked on ebay where it ranges from $320 on up which is well under the $499 tag at Amazon. Do you guys buy new glass on ebay or just older cheap stuff? One of them said it came with a "6 year Canadian Warranty" which won't do me any good in the USA I'm assuming. I'd definitely like to have the warranty. It comes from the manufacturer correct? So if you get a new lens do you automatically get the warranty?

They list a mailing address on the site I didn't goggle earth it;

Texas 77373

I found no record of consumer complaints or praise. However, none of this gives me a warm fuzzy.

Look through the rest of their "prices" - no way those are legit.

Yeah I figured so, sounds like a good way to toss $249 down the drain
