If you want to buy used from a reputable source I suggest you try B&H Photo, Calumet or KEH.
The blue label line is not bad, though expensive at regular retail price. They also fit on the slim side. Just my opinion, but their 38R fits closer to a 37 which works perfectly for me. Overall I like their quality and style, but I'd wait to get it on sale. Right now, with the additional 30% discount, it's not too bad. I haven't heard a definitive answer on this, but some have said that the Polo II suits are Corneliani suits that may be 1/2 canvassed.
I was already a Megadeth fan. This just makes me a bigger fan.
The code should also be valid at the retail stores. If you find something you like there, ask them for the discount. Usually they'll give it to you even without a printout.

On the right cut, I think roping looks fantastic.
Avoid gray market. Not only is there no factory warranty, you may not be able to service the lens at the manufacturer within the country where you made your purchase. Adorama and B&H Photo are two of the better retailers with solid inventories. You might also checkout buydig.com or beachcamera.com. That latter two are authorized dealers and often have better pricing. Good luck on your decision.

I'm guessing that I would need a lens with good zoom...
How can you put a post like this and not name the store?
