  1. I've seen many questions about where to get a 70-200. At this moment, they are in stock at B&H. Same design as always...

    Yeah, where it is right now it is just in my price range, I have a feeling any updated copy will be beyond what I can justify to spend on one. That is until I get a proper job come January assuming I can finish a thesis. Not like I shoot FX at the moment anyway which is where most seem to nit-pick the lens.
     
  5. I bought mine with my D200, kit lens of choice :). But I've enjoyed using it under FX. My expectations are not lab quality photos from edge to edge. See them going for nearly $2k on ebay from time to time, some must like them. Sold my D200, still wondering if I did the right thing there. But if I should keep the 70-200 is not something I ponder over.

    If only I had $1700 in the bank account :(
     
  7. I see it's $1629.95, your choice Import or USA. Usually the Import is a few bucks less coin.
     
  8. I snagged one from BH this morning a full 3 hours before their email alert reached my inbox. :biggrin:

    Now, I just wait for that overnight shipping notification from them before I'm totally comfortable.......

    I wonder if Nikon just releases a bunch of these. Circuit City has them in stock too now.
