    here at www.photoforum.com there is a link to an online photography store. I found lenses going for way cheap. For example Nikon 55-200 mm with VT going for 130 something. Normally it goes for 270. What am I missing? is this stuff used and not new? or was the photographer who may have owned this equipment less than pleased/


    deals sound almost too good.

    Looks like you see a used one at $165.00. The store is an affilliate of Amazon. The majority of the offers for the lens new were at $249.00.

    Hope that helps.
