"Selling 12-24mm Nikon zoom (DX)"
Wed 16-Feb-11 11:20 PM by LucN

Landen, BE
          

Nikon wide-angle zoom (Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED DX). In original packaging, including soft lens case CL-S2 and Sigma UV multicoated protection filter (77mm, value appr. € 55). Less than two years old, in mint condition and can hardly been distinguished from new. I'm selling it because of having switched to full-frame.

€ 775, plus any shipping costs (about € 25 to € 35, depending on country of destination).

And can you ship to the UK?

Cheers.

Shipping to the UK is no problem. What would be your offer, excluding shipping costs?

Thanks for your reply Luc...

The difficulty is the exchange rate at the moment.

I can buy this lens new for around £700.00 GBP (£750.00 GBP with filter).

€775.00 EUR @ 1.14 (today's exchange rate) = £677.89 GBP

So the saving is not great for me, especially given that the lens is nearly 2 years old. Maybe it is better that you sell it to someone in the Eurozone.

I do not want to insult you by offering you too low a price... ...sorry if I have wasted your time.

Would you be willing to offer € 700 (£ 614), shipping charges included?

I realize the lens is nearly 2 years old, but can assure you you won't be able to distinguish it from a new one.

Are you sure you can legitimately buy at this price?
If you buy from a grey importer you are liable for 25% in UK taxes - taking the price to over £850 - which is a little more than the official import price of around £830.
The usual second hand price at Ffordes (they sell at least 2 a month) is around £650.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.

Hello:

For what it's worth, I purchased the lens at € 999 (plus an additional € 57.95 for the Sigma filter), in 12/2008. That's still about the going price in Belgium as of today (€ 969 -- see http://www.fotokonijnenberg.be/product/6341/nikkor-af-s-12-24mm-f-40-g-dx-if-ed.html).

The DigitalRev link shows a price of only € 924.02 for Belgium (€ 763.65 excl. of VAT (21% in Belgium)); and £714.45 for the UK (£608.04 excl.), which is considerably cheaper than Belgium. Grays of Westminster in London lists it at £799 (http://www.graysofwestminster.co.uk/products/digital.php).

I'd be happy to accept an offer, but do believe € 700 including filter and shipping charges to be a fair price.

Just my 2 cts of input .

Luc

I agree with you Luc.

I think it's a great offer in your market, but perhaps not enticing enough in our market.

I will bear it in mind though.

Thanks!

I fully understand your point of view too, Tommy, and would look at it exactly the same way. Take care.

At £713 it seems a good price, though interestingly no Nikon International warranty, advertised price not guaranteed (terms and conditions), and presumably shipping is extra
