opportunity to buy in pristine used condition.

It wasn't Ted's lens. The guy I bought it from told me that it was just too
big and heavy for him. He's a bit old, and decided the 80-200 f/4 would be
good enough for his needs.

Boy, am I glad he decided that within Ted's purview! :-) I should have it
mid-week next week! Reports to follow.

And Customs told me there won't be any duty on it. NAFTA just gained a new
freind. :-)
