Well, for $749 I had to pull the trigger on that. Thanks for the tip!! I wonder how long they will still sell for over $900 on $bay? Cheers, Bill
Didn't you mean $749.00 ?? :smile:
Yup, typo!! $749 plus 11.85 shipping.
Thanks, I had purchased last week and was awaiting availability.. .called them and mine will ship out. . . .they received 150 this morning per B&H. . they will go fast!
Out of Stock now.
Yikes! And I just found this thread.
It's alright Rich ,just think that your $749 will stay in your wallet that way ... until the next arrival maybe that is :biggrin:
Oh, I have one already, I was just very surprised that they went that quickly. I recently purchased a Sigma 12-300 and the 1.4 & 2.0 TCs ($$$$). That'll keep my LL at bay for a few months.
Frankly, I can't think of any other lens I want. I had the 17-35 , 85pc and 85 f1.4 but was forced to sell them; oddly I don't miss them. Other lenses seem to have filled the void nicely.
Well, there were posts all over DPR (that I saw) and other forums I'm sure. Doesn't take long for 150 people to see those threads and go to B&H to order. This is a lens that I've always wanted to have, but will never buy because I wouldn't use it enough.
Wondering on your thoughts on that 12-300, Rich.
It's the 120-300, just to be exact. Here's a thread of my purchase and initial impressions.
Succinctly, it's a blast. I've been shooting with a 2.0 teleconverter on it for over a week now. The images are superb....technique providing. The first two days were VERY disappointing, but with help from Flew and MikeMac I've improved just enough to appreciate how this lens can be in the hands of a competent shooter.
Here's my best shot so far with 600mm.
I was ordering this lens from b&h today and it was in stock. from the time I gave them my credit card info to the time I hit the last submit button they sold it out from under me. if they take your credit info it should be yours. this took maybe 10 seconds to do. if you go to order the next time click through and don't read anything or you most likely won't get it.
