Well look at their other auctions... Nikon 400mm f/2.8 AF-S, 80-200 f/2.8 AF-S, 17-35 f/2.8 AF-S... and they have a nice Canon 1D.

The seller is actually a pretty large supplier to the newspaper industry, which is surprising because all this gear looks to be in pretty good shape.

in my opinion... that lens is the sharpest that Canon has ever produced... and to this day they dont produce them anymore... I cant remember the last year it was... but it was used heavily in the Olympics when it was in South Korea... it actually still has leaded glass in it which is what gives it such brightness and clarity (from what I hear)... and a shot from this glass very rarely requires USM...

Call me a tightwad but.......
I HATE paying state sales tax on anything I buy over the web if I can possibly help it.
Looking to save $$ buying over the web most of the time the extra Tax ruins the savings.
This State rapes me enough for taxes!!

Esp on something of that price.....lets see....8% of $4300 = a lotta extra cash.

Oh I hear ya... (another good plug for Allens in *PA*)... the reason I posted this wasnt really to stimulate a sale... just more of a "whoa one for sale in this area!"... I bought mine from a guy in Boston who gets them direct shipped from Korea... there is also another guy (who is ver reputable) in Korea that sells them... both on eBay... no international tax there either...LOL

at less than $4k I cant believe no one has bid this yet... especially with a reputable seller... even the BIN price is less than the other two sellers on eBay who sell them regularly...

Hey Ross,

These are the good folks over at National Graphic Supply Corp. I had posted about them being a reputable dealer in Albany. Too bad I can't afford this lens :(. Thanks for the heads up, though.
