and a FINE first post it is
+1

So... looks like there is a newer version of that lens, but the only difference appears to be cosmetic (the latest R version is not CSC). Seems like a great deal.

Welcome to the user group, by the way!

Just put an order in. As mentioned, this is functionally the same as the new "R" version. This lens performs well enough that they don't have to change anything, but they are changing the looks, and adding an R to the name for all future versions. They're probably cleaning this out so that they have all new versions for the holidays.

Seems that silver is sold out, how interesting. I didn't realize that it was popular; I would have assumed that everyone wanted the black version.

Wow, I hardly ever have use for a telephoto zoom, but at this price, it is a complete no-brainer. Ordered. Thanks for the heads up!

They're showing 10 left in stock...

Are you kidding me? I put it in my cart, walked away for 5 mins to answer a call, when I returned to the laptop...........sold out.

Now the price is $249.
