Great lens - but you could have mine for less than a third of the price

Yes, it does seem VERY expensive. Well it is that cut price online retailer, is it not?!

I wonder how they managed to get a new copy to sell?

I doubt it exists (as a new item I mean) - some sort of listing error I suspect!

2004 looks to be the last year of production, that's a long time to be hanging around as stock somewhere

However, they do say 'More on the way'. Where from? Perhaps they've discovered a secret cache.

Suspect it's likely to be "Moron the way"

I noticed one of these in what was described as vgc complete with case went for about 200 a couple of weeks ago on EBAY...so, NEW or not more than 6x that price is
steep to say the least.

I'm surprised to see something like that for sale direct from Amazon, not a third party seller. Very expensive though, I can't see them shifting it at that price.
