Four hours to go...

I'm bidding on this baby on eBay... :-)

UPDATE: I won the bid!

UPDATE ON NOVEMBER 8: According to the US Postal Service, the lens was at Canadian customs five days ago. I'm starting to get a little pissed off...

UPDATE ON NOVEMBER 10: The lens finally cleared Canadian customs today. Whew!

UPDATE ON NOVEMBER 11: And I finally have it in my possession! :-)

Congrats!

Is it the VR version?

SEA said...

No, it's not VR! I can't afford a new 70-300, so I'm going for legacy! :-)

Natacha said...

I'm assuming you tried it out already (who can resist trying out new gear as soon as possible I wonder..). How are you liking it?

SEA said...

It hasn't shipped yet! And I've never tried this particular model, it was just one of those *hunches* -- and at US $175, I figure I can always sell it at my cost if my hunch turns out to have been a lousy one... :-)

Natacha said...

Oh silly me, didn't think about shipping. Oops.

What will you do with your 55-200mm if Nikon sends it back to you all fixed up?

SEA said...

Probably sell it, depending on how I like the 70-300. It's a decent lens and I'm pretty fond of it, so I guess we'll see... :-)
