What a wonderful bird, was this shot on medium or close distance?

Thanks for looking. This was at 600mm and I was probably a maximum 15 feet away. He let me get pretty close.

Gray market lenses. I've contacted them regarding other low priced items...every time the answer came back "import".

$700 deal is back online.

This is a Sigma authorized dealer according to Canon Price Watch. That is a great price for this lens!

Bought the Sigma for Nikon half a year ago at a price at $1045 from an authorized Sigma dealer in Sweden and never look back:-)

Bought mine the first day available locally and glad I got it then because 3 months later it was a few hundred $ more thanks to exchange. Now exchange is much worse, but that $700 is a good deal so long as it comes with typical 1 yr warranty. Additionally Sigma offers their own crazy 6 yr limited wananty...
