I have never had dealings with this outfit but I checked out their rating at http://www.resellerratings.com It's not completely horrible, but it's not glowing either.
Since nobody has this lens in stock and it looks like it will stay that way for a while I would put in an order with a reputable e-retailer. I I have two orders in. One order at Anacortes Telescopoe & wild bird $725 (ordered Feb 4 2006 and they are still filling Dec 2005 orders.) and I put in an order with Amazon. for $749 on May 10th (estimated ship date June 22. ) Will see..... I have just resigned myself to be patient and hope that Nikon gets their butts in gear and ramp up their production.

good luck,
Steve

Steve,

I saw that the D50 and this lens were in stock at B&H on 6/8, ordered both, and received them on 6/13. After reading the boards here or elsewhere at same time, others did the same or tried to. When I called store after reading this, I got mixed answers about in stock or not. After talking to supervisor, I was told it was in stock and had already been shipped, about 4 hrs after I ordered. So good luck and maybe you will be the lucky one.

Check out cordcamera: you can contact their e-sales dept at [email protected] or 1-866-338-2673

They are very reputable and are offering the lens for $699 plus shipping

The issue is not ordering the lens, but getting the lens. It cost me $885 to get the lens, from a for sale item at FredMiranda.com
