I am guessing not, but wanted to let you know I have a buddy with one that is getting ready to sell it for around 3700. He just has been lazy putting it up for sale. Just wanted to toss it out there if you are looking to save some money... Let me know.

I ordered my 300mm 2.8 last week and it came two days ago. Most exciting lens so far. :)
