So to break even, I'll sell my 55-200 non-VR lens (mentioned above) for around P8,000 and buy one off eBay at P8,000 also.
Luckily, today, I won a bid in my favorite eBay store, Camera Cameta! I won a brandnew Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR and, including USPS shipping, it's around P7,600 only.
Now to the surprising or weird part - when I checked my post on my last year's purchase of the non-VR version lens, I also won it on February 7, 2007(!!!). I was really surprised, stunned and baffled. Is this an instinct/urge to purchase or just pure coincidence?
Anyway, I consider today, Feb. 7, as Day 1 and I hope to receive this new lens within the next 10-15 days. Last year, total days from winning the bid to actually receiving the item is 10 days.
