Sorry I know this really belongs in the equipment thread but it's kinda urgent.

I'm thinking of bidding on this item, I don't think it includes the barn doors but from looking at the cost, buying a new set or barn doors to go along with it will still be cheaper than buying the whole lot new.

I don't know.. what do you guys think?
Tnx,
Dan.

Add the cost of a hefty stand and barn doors and then compare to the cost of a new one. A 2K pumps out alot of light and sucks alot of power, are you thinking of building a TV studio? Why do you think you need a tungsten light that powerful? I've been doing TV for 20 years and have NEVER used a 2K tungsten unit. An HMI-yes, tungsten-no. Not even in the CNN studios, the biggest tungsten units were 1K's.
