Good Deal on an FA 50mm

Just popped on Amazon and they had the FA 50 f1.4 listed with a reseller (Datavision Computer Video) for 211.68 and 5.50 shipping. Not certain how long it would last, but here it is.

I bit, but from the looks of it I might be in for a ride, if it even goes through. Put on the CC in case I need to dispute, and at least it is through Amazon storefront.
Thanks for the tip

Hard to say, but I usually feel like Amazon will make sure things are on the up and up (unlike places like Broadway Camera).

I hope it works out, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

All the bad reviews were last year and older. There is one good review so far and that is from this year.
Maybe they made a resolution.

I ordered one last week but was refunded my money. Apparently they over sold the lens and didn't have enough stock.

Or realised how low their price was after getting dozens of orders, and didn't fulfil any of them in order to make more later

Probably more like feeling the market and jacking up the price later from the feedback of those interested.
