If you can deal with the UK, then you can buy one for UKP 269.00
(including finder) from;
94 The parade
High St

I just faxed these guys asking whether these lenses are new and whether they 
ship to the US/accept US funds or credit cards.

I'll let you know what they say.  At ~$400 new, with finder, this seems too 
good to pass up for one who cannot justify $2,000+ for the Real Thing....and 
is , at best, an occasional ultra-wide user.
