Well, it's just to congratulate the winner if there's nothing fishy with this sale:

I paid 1120 GBP for mine and that was a bargain.

I'd be quite wary of a such a valuable item being sold by a seller with 0 feedback.

Honestly, if I didn't have all the money in the world and tried to complete a collection, I'd rather pay 2000 for the 600/5.6 than the 400/2.8. I don't think it will go far above 2000.And if the 400 seems rare as hen's teeth, the 600 is as common as cat's feathers.

The 400 weighs 6 kilograms, twice as much as the 600, and would need a 3000 bucks tripod to be of any real use. But if money wasn't an issue I'd take both, and a nice specially designed display cupboard, and all the other *-series lenses, and quit working to have more time for photography, and...

Wanna exchange pension schemes? You're five years less young than I am, but I've still got 15 years to go! Or more if the prognosis for my monthly pension is somewhat correct.
