A great deal! I could do with this.
But I doubt this lens will ever be in the budget of a teen.

Amazing price. I have yet to receive the credit card bill for my last lens purchase, and now this lovely temptation comes along.

My guess is they need to empty stock before the DFA 100 DC HD or similar gets released. That doesn't diminish this great price on a great lens.

Yeah, earlier today I pulled the trigger on a used 35 macro limited, and I was looking at used 100s, then I saw this and couldn't resist. When it rains, it pours.

Fantastic price on a fantastic lens! I picked one up early at $430. Now I regret not waiting but who can predict these fluctuations?

Feeling a bit sad that I spent $200 more on this lens a few years back. (I feel that it is worth that amount -- sharpest lens I own, one of the best made-- should be a Limited) In any case, not sure why anyone would consider the Tamron 90 when the DFA 100 is available today at this ridiculously low price.

I'm pretty sure I paid over $500 used last year. Sold it to buy my 77 Ltd.

That's an insanely good deal. It's a fabulous lens. Like DennisH, I bought mine used for over $500 and don't regret the purchase price at all.

If you're looking don't think buy-Great lens not sure about launch price but maybe the lowest price ever on this gem! I almost want a back up at that price!

I think I'm going to pull the trigger before they are gone! Plus, another FF in the inventory won't hurt!

I have to quit coming into this forum. Closing all windows and hoping I think of a reason not to buy.
