    $100 discount on Olympus 75mm lens

    Cameraland has the lens for $799 on eBay They are listed as demos, but when I emailed them, they said that they had never been opened, that they had to list them that way because they were discounting them.

    Either way the lens is a must have IMHO.

    The gambit of listing a lens as "used" or "demo" but admitting that they are actually new but sold below MRSP is one I have seen used by other dealers that I trust*. If Cameraland is a dealer who has been around for a while and will continue to be in business, then go for it. Times must be tough for dealers, though, to be letting $100 go off the table for such a fine lens.

    *Ten percent seems to be the point at which the dealer's profit is only coming from other payments from the manufacturer for the dealer's help in advertising the brand. There is no markup left on the lens itself.

    I received my lens today. It appears to be new and unopened and works well so far with a few test shots.
