I was trying to find grading on the listing, but the closest I see is

QuoteQuote:
**Pictures are of stock images. Know that the lens you receive will be in MINT condition, ready to rock!**
Crutchfield has it listed new for $550 Possible $25 off $250 coupon" 3A788 ", looks like people have been using it successfully.

EDIT: Lenses are excluded from coupon

I think before the last price hikes the MSRP was $550 so that's about right.

Henry's in Canada has them for $549, but they say it's a special order. I special ordered two from different companies, didn't get them and cancelled and ordered a Sigma 8-16. Henrys said they had 2 at the time but they wanted closer to $800 for them. Is this a new shipment coming at a reduced price? It would be interesting to hear from someone who actually gets one at this price, and to know if it's exactly the same lens, or if there has been some kind of cost cutting measures implemented.

I bought the 15 mm from henry's about a month ago for the $550 price. It was backordered for about 3 weeks, but they did honor the price when they got it in stock.

Placed an order at Henry's on April 4th and it shipped on the 17th. Free shipping, only 5% GST (no 9.975% QST on top...).

Does "GST" stand for General Systems Theory ? Or maybe Goes to Suck Tit ? If we had to pay ANY tax for online purchases in the US country would succumb in the Mother of Depressions...

In California at tax time you have to calculate the taxes on internet purchases and make the payment to the state.
Or you can let the state calculate it for you.

Yep. And sales taxes for online purchases are in the pipeline already. So soon you won't have to worry about if for income tax, as you will have already paid it at time of sale. The honeymoon is ending.

I got the DA15 from crutchfield, and it is a new DA15 limited. Very small and compact, but I'm not convinced it's great optically. I need to spend some time with it.
