    Fantastic lenses. Tried to buy the 85mm at Focus and the distributor wanted cash payment with delivery to follow. Walked away and ordered off ebay, very happy but received email from UK distributor ukdigital.co.uk having lifted my details from ebay demanding who I bought the lens from, demanding their information so that they could stop any one else selling the lenses cheaper, stating that I had avoided tax and import duty. Very unpleasant people.
