Good thinking.

That is a Mississauga number on the ad - it really is amazing what pops up on Kijiji and Craigslist here.

5500 is good enough and happier to see the "OBO"

If he sold it on ebay international, he could easily get $8000 to $10000 for it.

SOLD ! I am the one who bought it...

Man ! this is a jewel! It is in a mint condition!

Heavy jewel ! but I will manage that part...

Now I will have to sell a couple of lenses and spend more time with this new baby that I will cherish like a new baby !

Now, if anyone have experience with that lens, what should I know first on it's usage?
I plan to use it with a Wimberley WH-100 gimbal + C30 plate (being bought from oeriies) and my 055cxpro3 tripod...

Thanks to Azzy for having posted this ad here, and thanks to PentaxForums watch list feature !
A dream come true !

The GTA one (Toronto was closer for me ) ... If one hesitate... I'd say: Go get the other one fast ! Even at 6K$ it's a steal !
It is a wonderful lens...
I did use it yesterday for the fist time in the field and my goodness.... I am flabbergasted by the results so far ! (and I will have shoulder pain LOL!)
