they are probably selling below MAP and don't wan't to be cut off by their supplier.
It's a fantastic lens, enjoy it !
Thanks ... it should be fun to shoot.
As far as selling below MAP... no clue... I wouldn't think this is the case. Again, I think it comes down to GreenToe making money off negotiating deals and making money off the deal. From a business standpoint ... if you are the "middle man" making money off of deal you secure, you wouldn't want the masses to bypass you to make the deal on their own. Just my thoughts...
