Would you buy a new lens from a seller in Hong Kong?

I'm interested in getting a sigma 150-500mm OS, and I've seen some good deals on eBay that would be much less than buying locally or even from B&H once shipped to Canada.

Here's an example:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Sigma-APO-150-500mm-f-5-6-3-DG-OS-HSM-Canon-/160478393066?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item255d41f2ea

I'm just not too certain whether I should trust a seller from Honk Kong for an expensive lens, considering there have been some shady practices down there at times with fakes, etc. I've bought less expensive items from sellers in HK before without problems, but shipping a lens across the planet is different than a camera grip...

Have any of you bought from these guys?

Luc
