Maybe one of you, fellas, saw a good deal on that lens while searching for something else? The cheapest I can find is $439 through J&R Music and I'm not sure I'm comfortable buying from that place. I haven't heard of anyone who purchased photo gear from them ...

J&R is a good place to shop.

I don't buy much stuff from J&R, but of the few items that I bought from them, I have no problem w/ them whatsoever.

I've bought several items from JR. Very happy with them. Fast shipping, great customer service. Also, you may want to check out the "For Sale" section here on the forum. That model lens usually comes up for sale once a week! :)

Yes, the codes have expired, I saw that. The discount was $30 for the 100 2.8 Micro. JR seem to be okay except that they don't mention if the lens is an Import or USA and their price is the same as B&H for Import lens so it probably is. I went with B&H, always a safe bet.

Don't want a used one. I'd buy a ysed body, but not a used lens.

If you want one today, check BestBuy.com for locations that carry the lens. I got my local Best Buy to price match B&H and I was able to get it yesterday. It is truly an AMAZING lens. So happy with it!
