    Extinct lens - new, but weirdo NY store won't sell to Canada

    So this store in New York called Hudson Pixels "hudsonpixels.com" has in stock, for some reason, a *new* Nikkor SW 120/8. WTF? But they don't sell to anywhere outside CONUS. I called and they said it was because they don't have a shipper for Canada. Again, WTF? I said just ship it USPS or FedEx or whatever and bill me for it. Simple as that. They said no. Come on!

    Interesting. This thing did seem a little odd, and too good to be true. It's selling for the same price as used ones on ebay etc. And the guy on the phone sounded a little shady. I probably wouldn't have gone through with the order but thanks for the link. Schlockmeisters indeed.

    The other thing, about the quoted "retail" prices they quote vs their own prices - total nonsense. Completely inflated, by very large amounts.

    This is probably a little out of date but it shows the scale of Brooklyn discount biz. Doubt things have changed all that much:
