I have one that I bought new from B&H just before they were 
discontinued.  As far as I can tell, its performance is as good as its 
reputation.  Interestingly enough, it accepts the A2X-L teleconverter.  
The combination makes a 400mm F8 macro lens that goes 2 to 1.

Here's the kicker--I almost never use it.  No time these days with a 
demanding job, two preschoolers, etc.  So I'm thinking about selling 
it.  It's pretty much mint (no marks on it that I can see), and I have 
the original box, soft case, etc.  If you're interested , contact me off 

I also have the A2X-L (purchased used), with caps and original hard 
case, but no box.
