p.1 #1 · Nikon 300 2.8 ED IF Question


About 2 years ago I was shooting little league baseball and purchased a 300 2.8. Now I am wanting to sell the lens. Only one problem, I am not sure exactly which generation I have or its value.

Optically the lens is very sharp. I have the case, filter holder and strap. There is a some brassing on the tripod collar screw, name plate and strap connector.

I am uploading a few images of the lens and would appreciate any and all help.

Thanks,

Randy

right. the AF-I actually says "AF-I" on the plate. I think yours is the one before that, so the camera body drives it.

KEH has a BGN grade AF-I version for $1,669.00 and this one you have is the latest AF-D version before the AF-I. So I'd say you could sell it for around $1000 or so.

Correct. This is the final 300mm f/2.8 AF version. It has the "screwdriver" type autofocus so it won't work with the NIkon TCs, and won't AF on the low end bodies.

Thanks so much to all of you that replied both, for the fast response and information. I think your right it is the AF-D. I also love the site that show all the lenses with the year and serial number range.

Thanks again,

Randy

Technically it is "AF" not "AF-D",

Is it not a D lens?

I thought all AF lenses with an aperture ring where D lenses.

No. "D" was a feature added later to some AF lenses. There are D and non-D versions of e.g. the 50mm and 180mm. All AF-S lenses are D, perhaps that's what you're thinking of?

OK, I am really confused now. So it is just an 300 2.8 ED IF AF? Correct. I guess the name really doesn't matter except I wanted to list it correctly when I sell it.

Yes, Just put what the plate on the lens says and you will be fine.

Are you going to sell it here or ebay?
