    I honestly did! It was a mis-listing with an online camera store.
    They listed it as the older non-VC model, but the photos showed that it was the newer VC model and it should have been more like $300.00 mint, or at least $275.00.
    I made the purchase knowing it was listed wrong. Then, I felt bad and I emailed them, and came clean.
    Lens was already on the way. Because I was honest, they let me keep it, at the incorrect price!
    AWESOME!!!

    Here are a few sample images "reduced" that I've taken with it...
    Handheld, VC on, 300mm FX, very far away, cropped in.

    I know. I'm very happy with the purchase. I didn't need to spend $250.00 ish, so I was just looking for a cheap travel lens with reach. I don't like lugging my Nikon 70-200 around on hikes, etc...
    I scored and I feel better than I came clean, and was allowed to keep my find.

    I'm blown away by it, still. $75.00 total including shipping. And it should have sold for like $250.00 at least.
    Came with the box, caps, hood, papers, etc... it's mint.

    Best $75 you'll probably spend on camera gear.
    Congrats.

    Thanks. I was thrilled to land that lens at that price. It's a keeper.
