Nikkor 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 for sale. £550. It's in excellent condition and has had a lens protector on from day 1. I've been very happy with this lens, but it has now been superceded by my 70-200mm with 2x converter. I can't carry that many lenses! I'm in Northeast England and would prefer personal collection, but if anyone is interested feel free to contact me.

Hi Zedbadee. Apologies for not replying sooner, I've been on holiday in Germany.

I bought the lens in 2008 and still have all the original packaging. I will endeavour to post some pictures in the next few days. I took some test shots with the lens when I first thought about selling. I could be wrong, but I suspect the pictures are sharper than my 2x converter and 70-200mm combo. Nevertheless, for the number of times in a year I need 400mm, I can live without carrying the 80-400mm

As I say, pictures to follow.

Just as an aside I've just sold mine and that's an excellent price. I use the 70-200mm VRI with a x1.7 and x2 TC also with great results.

Hi Richard,

You're right, since posting the ad I've seen the 80-400mm go for considerably more on Ebay.
