As long as it's not gray market, I'd say it's a pretty good deal.  I've bought from buydig before (though not through eBay) and had a great experience.  I purchased the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 for a good price.  The first copy had AF issues (like many copies of that lens), so I sent it back.  Their return process was a breeze, and I received my new copy a week after I returned my original.

I'd definitely recommend them if you get a great price.
5D mark III, 7D, Sigma 12-24mm II, TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, Sigma 35mm f/1.4, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, 85mm f/1.2L II, 100mm f/2.8L, 135mm f/2L, 2x TC III

I'm seeing $779 + ~$16 in eBay bucks.  That's a better price than I've ever seen on the used market.  The only price I've seen lower was during a Canon 20% off refurb sale.

I had a good experience with them, also with the 50mm 1.4 Sigma. I figured I'd post that because it's the best price I've seen for it, especially given it's USA wty and brand new.

I paid $1,000 for mine a little under two years ago, so I'd say it's a fantastic price.

Just bought this lens through a eBay link at TDP about 4 minutes ago. Should be in hand by no later than Tuesday the 7th. Thanks for the post because I would have missed this deal other wise; I was getting ready to buy it from B&H Photo later this evening, saved around $90.00.
