    Thinking of picking up this lens, anybody know of a dealer with great prices?
    I have spent thousands but rarely get a great price from any of the dealers I have used. I would happily settle for one if I could come away feeling better from the deal.

    Anybody know where I can do significantly better than the $4500 B&H price?

    Call Birger Bros and see if they will do better. They give nikon cafe members a discount.

    that is a super, and very expensive lens.....

    Maybe try to get used from one of the forums, like nikonians or fred miranda......

    I am really afraid of e-bay myself...But some good folks there if your familiar with any.....

    good luck pal...

    I have received great prices from Samy's Camera, Penn Camera and Roberts Imaging. The prices have been great along with the service. Call rather than purchase by internet...let them know your best prices and let them beat them.

    I have gotten good service from OneCall, and very excellent service from Roberts. I also called instead of ordering over the net. Very satisfied with both dealers, but Roberts went the extra mile when my D2H metering failed, so they would be my personal choice.

    Hope this helps.
