    I just bought or am trying to buy Simons 70-200. He wanted to use Paypal and I do not have an account. So I get the brother-n-law to use his and give him some bucks for his trouble. Monies go into his checking account on Wed morn. Palpal is started on Wed afternoon and Paypal sends him an e-mail today telling him that it will clear on May 1 which is Tue for a grand total of 7 days! This to me is stupid. Is this the norm with Paypal or do you think it had to do with a the lens being over the pond, (its in Oz). The mail is faster than that! and less bucks! With the amount of money Paypal handles they are making big bux just on the interest for sitting on cash for a few days.
