The price is too high - period!

This is a speculative attempt to take advantage of the supply - demand curve. We know there are few of them in existence. Also, one other factor to consider. If someone in AUstralia wants this lens and buys it from OS then you will be stung with GST tax (10%) and other costs (customs etc). Out dollar has also recently crashed ..... making OS purchases even more expensive.

Domestically, this item would probably sell at sub $3K but not where it is at now. Anyway good luck to them - as I like the alternative suggestion of a new Canon 5D3+ Canon 135 F2L. Makes sense.
OS? Where is that?
