Eric;

Your price is fair, but keep in mind this is a non-L lens.

Calling it a "ONE OF THE BEST LENSES ON THE MARKET RIGHT NOW" is a far cry from the truth. Its not fast (f/4-f/5.6), not that sharp (for example compared to the 70-200 f/4.0 L "IS" lens), soft wide open, and has plastic construction.

It is however a good alternative to the 70-200 f/4.0 L "IS" lens being only about 1/2 the price and still having the "IS" feature.

Personally I prefer to shoot with primes, however there is not that many alternatives price wise. You can probably get a 85mm f/1.8 for around 400 used. or a 100mm f/2.8 macro for around 500. Anything with a longer focal length and we're in the L series of lenses.
