Hi all,

I have been keeping an eye out on the new wide IS primes.
My eBay thing alerted me to this deal below

Brand New Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 F2.8 IS USM Lens + 1 Year Warranty

http://www.ebay.co.uk/​itm/190791264368 (external link)

It is priced at just £354 delivered, which I thought was a mistake!

What do you guys think? I guess it comes with no warranty if I import to the UK from Hong Kong?


1Ds (Killed by bird crap), 5d2 (never to be taken apart!), 300d IR (fianlly put it back together), 35L, 40mm pancake, 85mm 1.8, Tamwrong 28-75 2.8 (really good lens!) and a load of spare parts!

Well, i checked all the prices of the other lenses fromthe seller and i think they have written £354 instead of £554.

I have won the auction and will confirm the price. If I do get lens delievered, hopefully without a customs charge then I will let you all know.

It's even cheaper on their site:

Good luck with your purchase and let us know how you get on.
