    The A*300/2.8 price is not too expensive actually considering what it is and its condition.

    The F*300 is too expensive because its like NIB and has a custom tripod collar (no big deal imho).
    DA* is as good as I've mentioned (both have pros and cons)

    The Tair is a good price, but from what I've read, the aperture 'flip' mechanism is a bit tricky w/o the rifle stock. Anyway, looks cooler w/ the rifle stock (just don't get mistaken for a sniper or terrorist! )

    Think DA* for me.
    Already eyeing for quite some time. When I bought a new bag 1mth+ ago I chose the bigger Crumpler 7 mil$ bag for this big lens.

    Hey bro, seems like you really got the terminal BBB illness...... Did you also go to the gym to strengthen your forearm so that you can handle this beast at ease?

    How to advise? Only you can make the call. By my calculation, the savings is about S$260. Buying from B&H, Adorama is a safe, painless exercise. But is it worth the hassle should there be an issue with the lens and/or when you need warranty later on?

    BTW, I have this lens for sometime now. Love it. I use it to shoot birds of a different kind Bought locally from TK. Let me know if you have any specific questions.
