If you buy through B&H or Adorama, follow the links from the forums here. Amazon is another option.

I bought from B&H. This is my favorite lens (edges out the FA77/1.8 LTD)

Why the hell is B&H selling both the 16-50 and 50-135 f2.8 for 1500?

$999.95 at B&H... 3yr warranty is $107.99... I might just do that... Although how do I get a Mack warranty? Right before buying ? Right after? How does it work?
$949 on ebay via Podigital 2000, is saving 50 bucks worth the shot?

Adorama sells mack warranty - 7 year warranty for 34 dollars.
Mack 7 Year Warranty for Lenses Valued $600 to $1000 1017

I just looked at their website. However, the lens is listed at 1599!! You could call them and ask if they will match the B&H price and then add the warranty.
