Yes, I suppose I should have mentioned that. Sorry for the omission. They are out of stock but will honor the price.

I just figured $254 was so unbelievably cheap that no one would mind the "out of stock" wait.

Odds are pretty good that when it's In stock, the price will be $100 higher.

Yeah but ... If you want one, order it now for cheap, right? [1] Or are you saying they won't honor that price?

I'm kind of surprised people aren't more excited by the price, considering all the complaining about lens prices.

[1] It shouldn't be too big of a deal to order it and then wait a couple weeks or month for it to come in, right?

can anyone vouch for this "Hunts"? Makes me nervous that they're $100 less than the "special" price that's too low to show at adorama and b&h

They are a chain. They have an actual storefront here in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA.

I have not made any big $ purchases there, but have got film developed.

I spoke with them in person about the price for the lens and they said they would honor the $254 price. I was going to pull the trigger on this lens, but other priorities came up.

Good luck!
Sam
