Adorama sell them for $1269 so $2800 is a little bit over the top I'd say.

A 'new and original' lens for $300 from china...? I've heard that before.

China is a great country. Got myself a pair of original 'Melvin Klein' underwear over there.

Hopefully I'm wrong but the phrase "don't count your chickens before they've hatched" was written especially for occasions like this.

Good luck Sir.

Don`t you mean "Don`t rely on your lens until it arrives"

Also why not give all us other members the site address????
