    anything to be cautious about

    or just normal stuff buying on ebay with lenses. i found what looks to be a descent deal on a tamron lense from ebay with the seller being from canada. I thought i read somewhere be cautious of overseas lense out of hongkong and such. Maybe im all wet but was just wondering. thinking i can pick up the
    TAMRON AF 17-50mm XR F/2.8 Di II LENS SONY ALPHA at a descent price.

    Bargain hunting can have unfortunate results. Sometimes, considering warranties and all, it is just better to pay the going price ... and bite the bullet.

    Good luck ... if you go another way, but for goodness sake, do not be surprised.

    I have picked up a couple of older Minolta lenses off ebay out of canada and had no problems with it, took almost 2 weeks for delivery. I also bought a cable release from Hong Kong but including shipping it was less than $6.00 took almost a month, works just like it's supposed to, so if itworks 20 times I got my monies worth LOL. I would be carefull before spending large sums over ebay on international orders.
