Ok so I was researching for prices on this lens the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. I spoke to my local camera dealer and he advised me to be careful on that buy because dealers get that lens for around 1300 or so. So for this place to go that low they would lose money. He said to check and make sure that the lens is not used or refurbished. He said too ask around if he thought he was just trying to sell me. The site says all new items. Btw the price is at $1089.00 tax free and free s/h. Here is the website for that site http://www.expecam.com/products.asp?product_id=10563&engine=shopcartusa I tried to call them but they are closed right now. I got home late from work. But has anyone ever bought from them or should I stick with my local dealer. I do trust him since many of my friends go with him and highly recommend this place. But like anyone else, We all want to save money and get more bang for our buck. The plus about my local dealer is that if anything is wrong, I can always go back to him. Could anyone please help me or enlighten me on this situation?
