"Goodbye Old Friend 80-400mm VR (Not the new AFS)"

Goodbye old friend. You served me well, even if you were a little slow to focus. You are in good shape, even if you don’t rotate quite as smoothly in your tripod ring as you used to, but at least the RRS knob that I added to the collar really lets the collar be tightened enough to stop any vibration. You were great for telephoto landscapes, wildlife shots, hand-held shots of birds from the kayak, and with a close up lens, even for insect images. But you’ve been replaced. So I’ll let you go for $600.00 including shipment in the lower 48, with shipment after a personal check clears, or receipt of a money order or bank check.

Please check your email, I just sent a PM with several questions. Could you post a few more pictues? It's hard to judge the cosmetic condition of the lens?

Sorry for the pregnant pause. I was overcome by other events. You have my interest sir. Do you have any frames taken out near the long end with that lens? Also, I am assuming that you are not interested in any electronic form of payment (paypal etc)?

Someone may have beat you to the punch. The money order is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Sorry. But if it falls through I'll let you know.

Not to worry. I am glad that you were able to sell it. I had seen this when it was still new but wasn't in a position to make an offer then. KEH has them for a little more if this opportunity has passed for me.
