I think it's time for a Xanax for Mr. Fromm. Telling people they deserve misfortune because they don't revere you as a saint is pretty sad.

I am seeing some Fujinon's for less than $200, actually quite a bit less. Fuji makes great lenses, I'll have to look more into them.
If I spend $40 for the lens from Chris and it turns out to not be a very sharp lens, I'll use it for portrait or whatever. If it's a great lens, I just got a great lens for $40. I don't see a downside here.
If it needs a CLA, I'll send it back to Chris. He's graciously allowing me to try out the lens before I pay him for it.
