    Hi guys,

    I'm pretty clueless with it comes to photography so I was hoping the pros here can lend a hand. I'm trying to buy a lens for my friend who in return is shooting my wedding.

    He's hinted that he likes the Canon 16-36 2.8.

    Can anyone recommend a place where I can buy the lens at a fair price?
    It needs to be new and not refurb.

    I found it on amazon but was hoping i can find a better price somewhere else.

    $25 cheaper on Adorama, but if you're looking for hundreds less for new... no dice.

    Do i trust ebay for lens? There's always 15% off using live.com (msn search).
    I dunno if i trust ebay. With amazon, i can always return.

    what's the return policy for Adorama?

    i wouldn't trust ebay, and if you are using froogle or any of those best price websites, run a check on resellerratings as there are more crooks than legit places now.

    I bought my 70-200/4L on ebay.. ebay is fine is you buy from a trusted seller.

    I bought from flashpointcameras which is just the ebay name for 17th Street Photo

    unfortunately.. it looks like they aren't selling on ebay anymore.. or at least they aren't right now. I got a hell of a deal.. $577 - $140 live.com cashback rebate = $437
