Kris, I did get a bit of a discount off the RRP but I always do from my local pro shop, I've been buying from them for years. Yeah 40% cheaper is almost unbelievable and a little scary
.. I can see it now, a few more nice lenses and next I'll be looking for a Leica M .. gulp! ... Oh and a 2yr warranty is very cool.
Nothing like a new lens to get you out of a rut
