Saw those a couple days ago and was surprised. Thoughts of a 300mm 2.8 ii floated through my head briefly until I realized that with tax, it's only about $300 off amazon price for a new one.

I checked there a couple of days ago and the 70-200 II was not available but had a "notify me" link on it I figured it was coming soon.

Be careful talking about Amazon and sales tax. The holier than thou use tax nazis will come after you...

True that. Hard to say whether it hurts more to pay it at the time of sale or at end of the year.

If you have patience, the 70-200 vll can be found in stock and on a 20% off sale. I picked up mine from Canon last march for $1699. Even with sales tax (6% in FL) it was $1800. It was nice to see that 300 f/2.8 ll in there for $5500. Now it's up to $5840.
