I know... I've been looking for a long lens and toying with the Bigma but at this price I could not refuse. It seems that delivery may take a little longer but that's fine. Happy days :-)

Is it a third party sale? I don't know how to navigate Amazon but when you search for the lens the price is ~900

It's from Amazon directly. The 3rd party price is 900 and something.
They have a history of honoring prices offered. I emailed the guy on another forum who originally posted it and said that he had received his lens today. Because it's from Amazon it's free shipping too. Below is my order. :-)

Yep, still available for the aforementioned price... If I only had the money I'd go for one at a glance. *checks pockets for a suitable credit card and proper excuse for the missus*

I was thinking about buying two and sell one with a big profit, but due to the delivery time and shortage of money (unemployed) I think that I won't.

Nice find.

I don't have the money, but perhaps I cannot afford to not buy it... I should be able to make at least €100 selling it in Denmark :-)

Great price!

Perhaps I should start checking Amazon every day for the lenses I "need".
