RENT one for a couple of days.
I bet a fiver you go out and buy your own copy in the same week you return the rental.

That's what I did....until the 100-400 MKii came out.......

Cheers.

I just wanted to say thank you to all those who voiced their thoughts/opinions about this lens. I made the purchase a few minutes ago.

On a side note... I went through http://www.greentoe.co​m (external link) (strange name lol ) and haggled the price down to $1759 for a new lens that is from a US authorized dealer. That includes shipping and tax. I must say... pretty cool service!

So... now I just have to wait until the lens arrives and I'll start posting some shots.

Thanks again all for the help.

Wow, well I feel stupid. I paid $1650 used! (although it has 8 months left on the warranty)

I will definitely keep that service in mind the next time I need to make a purchase.

$1650 is still a great price... think about the people who spent $2500 when it first hit the market. They had the benefit of getting to use it longer than we did, I'm sure the premium price was well worth it. (not be a smart ass) :)

Definitely give Greentoe.com a try. I have the Sig 50 in the basket with an offer of $779... again... USA distributor...warranty​..not grey market...etc. A lot cheaper than anywhere else I've been able to find it and still cheaper than the $200 B&H was knocking off the past couple of weeks.

Thanks again all.

I'll have my copy of this lens in a week and a half. Can't wait to get shooting with it. After using the 135L for the past 13 months, which my wife and I love and will probably remain one of our favorite, I definitely need some versatility, and this seems like it'll fit the bill! :) Can't wait to start contributing.
