    Thats what i got mine used for, i love it! You cant even tell it was used except that the auto/manual focus button would slip a little if i didn't watch out for it.

    My dad has this lens. I use a it a lot. Its awesome. $600 is a steal.

    $600 for this > $1300-1400 for 70-200 VR

    Well, I sent a message off asking if the dude still has it for sale. It's been about a month so the chances are pretty slim :(
