"400mm f2.8D AF-s LN- in orginal case"



For sale is a LN- condition Nikon f2.8D AF-s, using KEH scale. It comes with the rear cap, front soft cover, drop-in filter, extra drop-in filter holder, strap, HK-25I, HK-25II, both short and tall tripod collar foot, and orginal Nikon trunk. Glasses are completely clean, free of any defects. Operations are 100%. Cosmetically, there are a few nicks at the front where the lens hood attaches ( I have never seen one 400mm AF-s without such nicks, bad lens hood designs), one or two small and light surface marks on the lens barrel, some brassing at the lens mount. The finish on the lens barrel shines beautifully otherwise.

This is from a Japanese executive who bought the lens in the US, lived in US for many years, recently was called back to Japan and decided to let the heavy lens stay in the US. He bought it new in around 2000. The gentleman is an entusiastic birder but has not been using the lens much due to busy lifestyle.

I personally own one of these (if I did not I would have grabbed it myself) and I chose it over 600mm and 500mm for its versatility: I can shoot at f2.8 in low light and add a TC-17E II to make it a 680mm f4.8.

I attached some pictures here:

KEH has this lens of EX+ condition (one notch lower than LN-, without all the factory accessories) for $4999. Asking $4250 paid in checks or money order shipped in the US. Willing to take paypal and split the fees but will ship for the actual shipping cost for paypal payment.

I personally stand behind the descriptions here and will take returns if not as described. I am in Chicago area and welcome fellow nikonians to stop by to inspect it.

Lowered the price. That is more than $1000 lower than KEH price. I do not read PMs here. Please email me if interested.

To clarify, the included two tripod collar feet are Nikon feet. The pictures show a Wimberley replacement foot to work on a Wimberley head not included in the sale.

The lowered price is $4250, lowered from $4500. This compares to KEH's EX+ (one notch lower than LN-) at $4999 and Adorama's former rental starting at $3799 on ebay. Thanks, Jeff.
