 Item updated in the last 24 hours Item price reduced in the last 24 hours   Nikon 300mm F2.8G AF-S ED-IF VR II

Item Sold


Price: $4,700.00
Payment method: PayPal
Item condition: 10 Preowned equipment, but appears as new
Shipping instructions: UPS ground insured

Edit 5/19/13 How much lower do I need to go to move this bad boy $4700.00 is all it will cost you to own this gem.

Edit 5/8/13 - Any offers? This is a great lens that is almost new and now that I have my 500/4 it is not getting used. It needs a new home badly!!!

Edit 5/3/13 - price drop to $4800 plus no paypal and no shipping.

Edit 4/30/13: I'll cover the paypal fee and most of the shipping cost (flat $50 net to ship). Total net from buyer $5050.00 and it is yours (Of course there will be no shipping at all for a local deal). That's over $800 less than a new lens for one that is about 10 months old.

I'm relatively new to these boards but have been lurking for about a year. I bought this lens new from B&H about 10 months ago and have used it extensively for mainly bird images as a hobby. I decided I needed a little more length so recently picked up a 500/4 from a member here about 2 weeks ago. I have no use for both lenses so I've decided to give up the 300/2.8.

Lens comes with rear lens caps, original front hood and replacement realtree lens hood (much easier to get on and off than original), Lens coat, and soft case, and manuals. I do not have the original box. It appears that my wife used it to packages something up at Christmas and I never got it back!!!

The lens is practically new. The glass is crystal clear and the lens takes exceptional images. I bought the lens coat at the same time as the lens (also from B&H) and put it on the day they arrived. I have never taken it off. If you would like additional pictures of the lens without the lens coat let me know.

I am not a professional photographer so I hope the images I am posting are adequate. I can post more if need be.

Since I have little feedback and have never sold anything online I am a bit cautious and I would prefer to deal somewhat locally on a cash basis if at all possible. I live North of Pittsburgh but have children in Raleigh, NC and in the Philadelphia are and travel to those destinations frequently. I would also be willing to drive within a couple of hours of my home to meet you. That leaves an area from approx Buffalo, NY through Central Ohio, all of Pennsylvania and most of NJ to Raleigh, NC.

Price shown is net to me. If I need to ship this actual shipping costs plus paypal fee will be added.

Again, practically brand new. At the time I bought the lens B&H had these on backorder so I bought this from Adorama. When I bought the 500/f (along with a Gitzo tripod and Wimberley head ) Will (the seller) threw in a 1.4x tc as a freebie so I am selling the 2.0x. This is the USA version.

Front and rear caps are included along with the original box and manuals.

Price shown is net to me and excludes shipping/paypal fees.

How do I attach additional images? I was going to upload a copy of both invoices from B&H and Adorama but was only able to upload 5 pictures?

Here is a copy of the order I placed with B&H on 6/13/12. I was going to include a copy of the Adorama order for the TC along with a couple of pictures as well but it appears that the TC has already been sold.

Nikon TC-20E sold to MichGoBlue.

I inadvertently marked both items as sold. Is there any way to reverse that or do I need to re-post the lens?

Thanks

Here are a few pictures of the lens without the lenscoat. As I said in my original post. I put the lenscoat on the same day the lens arrives and this is the first time it has been off. I have checked the lens thoroughly and the only wear that I see is on the foot and that is most likely due to handholding. Although I used the lens with a tripod on occasion it is very easily handheld and I quite often went birding without my tripod with this lens.

The Arca Swiss plate that you see goes with the lens.




















Slight wear on both sides of the lens foot
