I had an undesirable experience with them. Got multiple calls and emails trying to sell me more and then my received item was part of a split up bundle. If you're willing to put up with that kind of stuff then it's a good deal.

I Placed an order few days back and haven't heard any thing back yet. Unable to contact Customer Service.

Will see whether they will eventually ship it.

I've always had good luck with them, but I did get the calls trying to up sell each time which I didn't mind. I'd buy from them again.

The $299 lens at Abes was an import, or "gray market" offering. I have no problem with that, just make sure you understand the consequences of an import purchase when you are doing you price comparisons.

I called them and they told me it is an import model and comes with no US Warranty. It comes with a warranty (Most likely made in Taiwan and for Asian Market).

Do you guys suggest going ahead with the purchase ? In case some thing goes wrong with the lens what options do i have ?

Thanks
