Abe's has this excellent lens for the lowest I've ever seen. Searched but didn't see it posted already. This is one of my first posts, take it easy on me.

Never bought from Abe's of Maine, but anytime they are posted on here a lot of people have negative things to say....I've gathered that they are a sleezeball company that will call you after you order and change price?!?

ah thanks +rep, I hadn't heard this, but I stopped buying camera gear a long time ago before the "new" Abe's of Maine. it used to just be a tolerable upsell call . . .

Avoid Abe's at all savings... The original owners of the name should have never allowed the name to transfer.

I doubt if ABEs of Maine is not legit but they are not BuyDig or b&h. Its said that they strip the package for eg you may not see lens cover, hood etc that usually comes in the box. Nevertheless if there is a realistic return, price is not bad. I still prefer the one I trust fully for the added comfort and peace of mind.
