Well, if you don't want to pay more then $749.00 you need to get on B&H's list. If you don't want to wait you can pay the $899.00 most stores are charging. I seen one at Best-Buy just waiting for a new owner for the $899.00 price. Mine came with my D200 and I still had to wait two weeks for the lens to arrive. At the time the camera was in stock but the lens was not. It was worth waiting for though.

Hey Snakeman, Do not worry if it says "Made in Thailand" on it because it will still be a very good excellent lens. This fact is covered by a lot of posts on this and other forums.

Don't forget to announce it's arrival when you get it.

Hi Snake,

Just wondering if you've had any luck on the lens.

Saw it on Amazon.com and many people are fuming about waiting 4+ months to have Amazon just cancel the order. :/

I don't know... maybe I'll have to take the plunge and head to Best Buy. Yeah, it's about $150 more... but looking around, it looks somewhat abysmal (sp?) that I'll get it before I retire (I'm 40 years old now) LOL

I know the car pictures are not crisp or sharp at all. It's hard to shoot through the fence and only having a limited area to work with.
