    HU: 200mm f2.0 VR

    At Cameta Auctions on Ebay. It's a factory demo for $2,750 with a 1-year warranty.

    I've dealt with them before, and was looking to buy a D300 from them, and saw this lens, so I thought I'd let the people on this forum know.

    I have no affiliations with the place, but they are good to deal with.

    Regards,

    Oops, I should have said it's a Nikon lens.

    If legit (and Cameta's rep is good), it's a hell of a nice price. Aaargh....the gods (actually must be goddesses) of the dark side (I shoot Leica/Zeiss/Hassy on a 1Ds2) are whispering nasty suggestions in my ear.

    Don't get too excited. It's an auction, and price is currently $3,558 with 16+ hrs remaining for bidding.

    The item was originally listed with a BIN (Buy It Now) proce of $2,750. However, if anyone puts a low initial price, the BIN price disappears and it becomes a regular auction. Apparatenly some nimrod put a price of $333 to start it off, and ruined it for a BIN buyer. Where do these idiots come from?

    In that case, I think "nimrod" and "idiots" are understatements!

    Have to agree. They should have just nailed it immediately.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I believe it's called shill bidding....

    No dealer in their right mind would sell that lens for $2700 and lose over $1000 from dealer cost. I bet they know the nimrod very well indeed.
