Nope, it *was* a scam... my answer back this afternoon said, "I happen to be in Italy, so I will send you the lens for inspection and you send Amazon the money..."

Yeah, right.

So there is a new scam lure: high value lenses. The ad was in the "Big Island" section of Hawaii Craig's List but no town was noted, and that, too, made me pause in response. Plus the too-low price...

Beware, all you who lust after big long white glass.

Too bad, but good you did not loose any money on this. 

This kind of scam works both ways, buying and selling.  If you list your X00mm or pricey camera etc, you will more than likely receive email from buyers "on vacation in London" etc.  It's a shame as it once you are aware of the scam you may loose legitimate buyers.
