Just over 90 minutes remain on the lightning deal at the moment I post this. This lens normally goes for $269, so pretty good deal. Checking various sites for reviews, most people are very positive about it's ability/value. It should be noted though that there is no electrical connection, you have to set the camera to shoot without lens, and put in Aperture mode & manipulate aperture/focus manually. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005TOU804/ref=ox_ya_os_product p.s. If you have a Chase Freedom card, charge it to that and get an extra 5% ($10.50) off -- assuming you have activated your quarterly cashback promotion & haven't already bought $1500 of stuff with it at amazon!
