    I buy from these guys all the time, great to deal with and they give you a 14 day return policy so you can check out the gear. Don't be afraid of the "Bargain" rating, I always buy these if I can find them, they have a very conservative rating system.

    Sorry, Evin was that a reply to my question about the 20-35mm Nikkor? You're saying I shouldn't grab that one? I'd rather not spend $1200 on the 17-35mm if they're very close to being the same lens.

    EDIT: ok, looks like that link you gave does list the lens I'm looking at for a range of $300 to $700. With a warranty that would be a better deal. Though I am in Canada and shipping and duties and such can be a hassle.

    I am curious whether you think the 20-35mm is just as good as the 17-35mm that you've given rave reviews for.

    No, I don't think it's as good. Although the image quality is not bad on the 20-35 it's quite good, it just doesn't compare to the 17-35. Also if you think in 35mm still terms (Which is still how I have to think of things) the 20-35 is only a 32-57mm lens, hardly that wide at all. Where as the 17-35 is 27-57 a much more useable range IMHO. There was a bargain condition 17-35mm lens in that link for $819.00.

    Thank you Evin. Glad they made you a Moderator. You know your stuff. I'm going to pass on the 20-35mm and keep looking. Cheers!

    Anyone used Keh.com to ship lenses to Canada? How'd it go?
