nice lens, but I personally I'd rather buy a K10D and a Sigma Bigma and still have close to $1000 left over :ugh:

I was about to bid, and then I read the following:

Please bid only if you're in Canada or the US

I'm truly devastated

omg, this is a first for Henrys haha. very nice find.

I agree though, unless you really need the 2.8, it ain't worth $3000. Too much $$. You can buy the K10D Sigma 100-300/4, east german 400mm/4.5, etc etc etc.

It's a lovely lens and worth having if you can afford it, although it's a monster. I was lucky enough to find one at Adorama in excellent condition for about $2600. Works great with the F 1.7x AF converter to give me a 680mm f4.8 AF lens for nature shooting. The combo demands an extra sturdy tripod though.
