    I am getting ready to order a Pentax 77mm lens that goes for about $660 usd. B/H is where I typically buy and Pentax frequently has a $100 rebate on it, but not currently. I saw on Ebay that Henry's from Canada has the lens new for $549. I've heard of Henrys before but never bought from them. It comes with a 2 year Canadian warranty and a 1 year international warranty.

    So, is Henrys reputable?

    ^^^ What he said. I would certainly call it reputable.

    Henry's celebrates 100 years in the camera business next year, so yes they are certainly reputable to say the least. In Canada, they are the camera store and you can negotiate with them for a lower price. I have got $200 or more dollars off prices from Henry's.

    I went ahead with the purchase. On ebay they have a 99.9 approval rating w/ over 124K auctions. I'm pretty excited about this lens. It's been on my list for a while and the reviews are awesome.
