"nikon 500mm afs II"
Thu 05-Mar-09 12:37 AM by Voodoo


I want to sell my nikon 500mm afs II ser no 400359

I bought from adorama as a nikon refurb just a few months ago and decided with all my handholding the vr will benefit me. So out with the new and in with the newer.

here are some links to specs

http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-500mm-Nikkor-Digital-Cameras/dp/B00009XV9L/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1236208200&sr=8-2#moreAboutThisProduct

http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/lens/af/telephoto/af-s_500mmf_4d_if_2/index.htm

I am asking $5800 shipped to your door in continental USA using paypal verified only


few more pics









I am including a lenscoat cover that I just recently put on...

so there is about 3 months wear and tear without cover

case, lens cap, filter, hood, lens, lens cover, strap are included along with my nikon 90 day refurb warranty card unregistered or used

I have used this lens with both the 14 tc and 17 tc and am quite happy with the performance, but NAS always wins with me

the hood has some minor scuffs, the glass is mint, and it auto focuses super quick.












will take more pics of whatever if requested

Thanks for sharing,

Jeff

will take a check, money order or wire transfer for $5600 shipped to your door. wont ship until the money clears.

after receiving my new 500vr, this afsII autofucuses just as super quick with and without tc's.

its a great lens

and looks brand new except for the hood and the clips where the strap connects to.

Thanks for sharing,

Jeff

just put this up on fred miranda

I have for sale my nikon 500mm afs II ser no 400359

I bought from adorama as a nikon refurb just a few months ago and decided with all my handholding the vr will benefit me. So out with the new and in with the newer.

please email at austin.jeff@gmail.com for quick response

price is $5800 for paypay verified in USA shipped to your verified address door

I am willing to meet with anyone in the area(central VA) for a sale price of $5400.

This lens has a few marks on the hood and the rings were you attach a strap, other than that it is Mint.

I am including a black lens coat cover

this lens is super sharp and autofocuses as fast as my new vr 500 with and without 14/17 tc's, I even think it is sharper than my new 500 vr.

It was purchased end of Novenber 2008 from Adorama as a refurb.

the glass and contacts and body are mint, this lens is perfect for those needing to use tc's for smaller birds, etc...at over $2k off

I will provide a 5 day warranty which will refund your full payment upon receipt of the lens and all accesories in full working condition as sent to you. you must pay return shipping charges/insurance/delivery confirmation.

I am reducing the price $500, as after taking off the lens coat cover and looking at the lens closely, I wouldnt conclude it is mint. It is one notch below mint.

paypal verified, shipped $5300.

$4900 face to face.

Thanks for sharing,

Jeff

The minor flaws I notice are as follows:

there is minor rubbing/brassing where the hood attaches to the lens
on the lens foot there is some paint chips where the rrs plate was
attached (bottom of foot)
on the lens strap connectors there is some paint wear
I cannot see any flaws in the glass whatsoever. not even 1 speck.
there maybe a piece of lens tissue lint in the threads of the lens hood.
there are some rubs/marks on the outer lens hood

I am pretty sure all these less than mint conditions can be seen in
the pics already posted.

here are a few more pics, the lens pics are hard for me to show
perfect, I will show as many as you like, just ask for more if unsure

after using my 500vr lens for the past few weeks, there is nothing slower or less sharp about this lens I have for sale.

at over $3,000 off the new vr version

$5300 shipped to your door via paypal verified

5 day return policy, meaning once you sign for it, you have 5 days from that date to use, test, examine...and if its not for you send it back the same way I sent it to you (at your expense)

Thanks for sharing,

Jeff
