    Well it's $800 new. Almost 50% off sounds like a good deal to me, no?

    No gloating its only a lens, if it was hot blonde then yeah I would gloat.

    This lens has always been out of my price range so I never looked into it.

    Depending on the condition of that lens, I'll grab it... it's a good buy.

    Always do a thorough check. When prices dip too low (even for used) my first suspicion is always scam or stolen. We all love "steals" or great deals, but you should also know when to walk away.

    Craigslist. The guy says that he just did not like the lens. Said he was going back to DSLR because he was not happy with the performance during sporting events using his ep-5. He had a few lenes and this is his last micro 4/3 lens left. He wants to meet in the parking lot of the local police station.

    sounds fantastic! Wish I could find a deal like that (and had the money at the same time).
