I was lucky, my order was $2199, there were 10 left and now they are sold out straight from Amazon. I usually purchase from B&H but they have been on backorder there for months. One of the 3rd party vendors on Amazon is selling them for $2,499. I see them used for upwards of $2300. Used ones should never cost more than new but there's a shortage and resellers are taaking advantage of it. Next on my list is a Nikkor 24-70 2.8. I may sell my 17-55 2.8 to get it. Don't tell my wife.
