Nice price! Is there any way to prod B&H to match this? I want to order this, but the $41 in tax savings would be really nice.

You can call them and ask. They will normally honor Adorama's prices, but in this case it's possible that they won't given the unusual nature of the price drops...

Well, Adam, that worked. I called and after the sales person discussed it with the manager, I was able to place the order over the phone.

If you place an online order then call them for a price match, we'll get credit and you'll get a refund

Actually, they have now finally responded to the email with a matching price and their own bundle (if you check the adorama page, you can get a bundle of accessories with the lens for the same cost).
