Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM 99% off

Thought this was hilarious at KEH:

Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM marked down from $14,999 to $149.  Reminds me of the stuff you'd see in Immortally Glassy Eyes in the back of Autoweek magazine (for all you American car nuts like me).

Sounds like Amazon.  The lens is $150 everywhere due to the Canon Rebates, it is a good price.

Well it looks like a cheap toy... But I guess at 99% off I should sign up?  :P

..or they just followed Canon's recent trend..
overprice it like crazy, establish/justify that cost than people after 6mths will feel privileged to get it at a retail price.. :)

..remind me of the classic... _______(whatever nation you prefer :) ) discount.. where the man goes to the apple stand, writes twice as much above the price and cross it .. :))
