This weekend I was out at one of the local camera shops in my area. I've been looking at purchasing a Sigma 70-200 2.8 HSM II. This particular shop is somewhat new to me (I'm not a regular customer) but a few weeks ago I did buy a D80 body from them. So I asked the salesman (same guy that sold me the D80) if they have any lenses in stock. After searching their computer the only one they had in was the older HSM I. The kicker was since this was their last lens they could not take it out of the box! I found that rather odd. Given they wanted about $780 for the lens (I thought was overpriced given it is an older model) I would have thought they would have wanted to show it to me. I didn't find this to be very customer service oriented so I guess I'll probably not be shopping there anymore..... Maybe I'm just too picky????
