Pricing on DA* 50-135

Just wanted everyone's feedback. The DA* 50-135 typically retails for around $1199 CDN but I saw it on sale for $979. While this seems like a generous discount, is it really that great of a deal?

I don't know what the comparison is right now -- US Dollars to CDN, but in the US right now, it typically runs around 850 or a little less (B and H has it for 819 with free shipping). I don't know if any of these places ship north, but you would be losing your two year Canadian warranty in exchange for a one year international one.
