Hi Gary,

Good for you! That is certainly the best price I've seen on that lens in quite some time. Heck I thought the pricing being offered @ KEH.Com (299.00) was outstanding.

Thanks, Zig. I really wish I could've afforded the 12-16 or 11-22 but from what I've read posted here and elsewhere, I think I'll be happy with this lens.

I really liked my 14-54 and I am sure you will too. Lenses that are not optimized for cdaf seem to be losing a lot of value, so people who are now buying them are getting great deals on them. I've seen the 50-200mm non-swd going for less than $600, which is a steal in my opinion.
