Default Canon 55-250mm IS from ebay?

Hi,
I am going to buy a Canon 55-250mm IS. I see them on ebay, new, not refurb or gray market for around $205. Anyone buy one of these. Do you think it is safe, or is there a large market for fakes?

check the buyer's feedbacks. I then to buy use lenses on ebay and had have positive experiences. Some of the big camera sellers sell on ebay as well, like adorama and camata, and come with the full warranty and support of the store and the canon warranty.

Ok, thanks, I have bought from ebay, and been happy, I just noticed tons of 55-250mm IS, and a lot say they just came in a kit, I just did not know if this lens seems to be a market for fakes.

We do indeed, and I'm always only an email away for after-sales support if needed.
