Hello,
There is a guy selling an ef 500 f4 L IS with metal case in N. Mississippi for $2,500.00. I came across the listing and thought to give a heads up. He describes it as excellent condition with very minimal amount of dust. It is shown with original box and manuals (BH) but the steel container says 600?

Anyhow looks legit and could be a great deal for someone. I came across it on Craigslist though so be deligent!!!! http://memphis.craigsl​ist.org/pho/2053690020​.html (external link)

LightRules, I threw it out there strictly as FYI. It could be legit or it could be a crock! It would be up to you to do some homework and to be sure you are protected when making any such purchases.

take care, Ralph

The little plaque on the enlarged picture looks to say 600 to me. Date code is UR1109.

Either way, it smells like a week old halibut to me.

I might be wrong but the lens says 600mm on it.

It's also fishy that it has a "Reply To:" email address in the body of the ad.
EDIT: and the email address is a link to an aol.com email address.
