This lens is back on sale over at B&H as their one day Deal Zone for $729. Nikon mount as well.

I also got it on a Deal Zone day but mine came with the Dock for $749. I only used the Dock once to update as well as to change settings users here recommended.

this one is a little caveat emptor to buying used on e.bay , I bought a used Nikon D3S last weekend got it at a extremely good price , immaculate exterior condition with no paint wear or marks or scratches , high shutter count but I'll take my chances on that .. but it arrived very dusty all over and took a bit of cleaning , and on a test out on weds I also found the sensor was full of dust bunnies , I messaged the seller and he agreed to pay for a sensor cleaning kit .. that arrived on Friday and I then went out to test it and spotless now but unless you can do the work yourself be carefull , below is the dust bunny shot followed by a after clean shot .
