"FS: Nikon 70-200mm VR - Tropical Grey model. £1000"


London, UK
          

Description:
Using Greys' scale (http://www.graysofwestminster.co.uk/products/grading.php) I'd list this lens as Mint- or Exc++.
No lens marks, no chips or bumps.
Never dropped or misused.
I've been conservative in my rating of the lens, and would really only consider it below True Mint due to it having been used lightly and the very feint marks on the mounting ring from when it's been on the camera.
I have Box, the original zip up case and the hood.
It's always had a circular polarizer on it, except where I've taken it off for the extra stop.
Greys of Westminster list these lenses at £1400 new, when they have them in stock.
Being Tropical grey, they are quite rare and sought after.
Great for hot days, trackside, as it doesn't suck up solar heat like a black lens.

Reason for sale:
Don't have the time right now for dedicated use or carrying it around and in London I'm finding more use with my standard zoom.
Originally bought for use for sports shooting but my time in the sport I love didn't pan out and the lens could be better used in other hands.

I just upgraded to Gold member at work, so don't have my photos of the lens available.
Can send on request and will add some later today.

Would prefer a pick up sale.
Happy to travel (within reason) for you to inspect.
I also frequently travel up to Kidderminster / Birmingham to see family, so happy to meet half way for any interested Northerners.

Thanks,
Pete.

Let me know if you want higher res images or a different angle. I didn't upload all I had.

Hmm, seems there's an editing "window" on the original post.

Dropping to £950.

I have just bought this lens and it cost me £1300.00p, so this is a fantastic buy, and lens, just wish it had been advertised 2 weeks ago........

P.S the Tropical Grey looks fantastic on a D200.

Agreed.
You won't find a better lens for under £1000.

And don't be put off by the grey making it "Canon-like".
I've blagged my way into the pro shooter's corrals at some events with it.

If you two guys haven't made a deal yet, I'm interested in this lens. Sent a PM to the OP, too.

There's a few posts near the bottom that let it look like it's sold.
I can't edit the title.

This is still available.
£950

Thanks for looking.

Sorry Brian, I forgot about this thread being open.

I'm off to South Africa on Thursday so I've decided to withdraw the sale.
Sorry to anyone clicking here, I can't edit the first post.
