    As long as its not a rip off. I just got another smoking deal. I took some extra precautions and it seems legit. Wife is going to have to sign for it, as I will be away for work when it gets here. :aiwebs_016: :aufsmaul:

    It involves a six and two zero's.

    Wonder if pizza will cover this one as well.

    If she does you're one lucky dude. Mine requires carats (Yup I spelled it right, cause you don't eat them).

    Already have one of those. Has lots of big pieces of glass in it. Well bigger than normal at one end anyway.

    600mm f/4.0 AF-I. Just 2 marks on the barrel. Case, caps, hood. Way less than Keh has a bargain rated one going for right now. But not counting the eggs till I get hands on it.

    If the deal goes down, just have 'em ship it to 'ol Peeb. I'll be glad to look it over for a year or two, just to be sure it's in good order. :D

    Just be careful they no longer have parts for them if something goes wrong

    I can't remember the name. But there is a shop in Chicago that tears down lenses that are beyond economical repair and saves the working parts. Last I heard they were still taking AF-I lenses for repair. That was a couple years ago though. But yea once the donor parts are gone. That's it.

    Only time will tell if they are useful beyond that description. :azzangel:

    Compared to rental rates for current lenses for a week. My break even would be about 6 weeks each lens. So, basically 6 weekends each. And I'm saving money. Now if I was to rent them originally in the first place is another story. :345: But it sounds good.
