"For Sale: Nikkor 500mm P Lens"

Nikkor 500mm f/4.0 P IF ED telephoto lens. This manual focus
lens will meter with most DSLRs. Included are the lens, lens
hood, shoulder strap, rear cap, front hood, drop-in filter
holder with Nikon L37C UV filter and hard suitcase.

Extras include a drop-in circular polarizer (C-PL 1S) and a
drop-in gel filter holder.

The lens is in very good condition (that's a commonsense
description, not a technical one.)

Bjorn Rorslet rates it 4.5/5:

Asking price $3,000 for lens and C-PL1s plus shipping.

Bob

Hi Bob: I've just bought a 500mm f4P on eBay and I would like to buy your drop-in circular polarizer (C-PL 1S) for $200.00 plus shipping. This would enable you to drop the price for the lens and many photographers don't want the polarizer because of its exposure factor.
Cheers, David in Toronto

Thanks David. I'll keep that in mind should I get a buyer who doesn't want the CPL1s. Right now I don't want to sell the polarizer unless I sell the lens.

I'm relisting this with a lower price.

Nikkor 500mm f/4.0 P IF ED telephoto lens. The lens comes with the supplied hard suitcase, lens hood (reversible for storage), rear cap, front cover, drop-in filter holder with Nikon L37C UV filter and a drop-in gel filter holder: $2,500.

Also for sale, a hard-to-find Nikon C-PL 1S drop-in circular polarizer: $200. However, I won't sell the C-PL 1S until I sell the lens.

Buy the lens and polarizer together for $2,600. I'll also include the first $100 shipping/insurance via Canada Post in the price if you don't live in Prince George.

The lens is in excellent condition -- clean glass and smooth operation. I have receipts for my purchase should you want them. A photo is available on request. Nikon built this lens from 1988 to 2005. The serial number is 204XXX so it was likely built in the latter part of that period. I've had it since 2006.

This is one of the few Nikkor "P" lenses. It is a manual focus lens with a CPU chip so it will meter and operate with most Nikon DSLRS -- it has worked well with a D70, D200, D700 and D7000. Bjorn Rorslet rates it 4.5/5. The cedar waxwing photo at http://www.pgphotoclub.com/gallery_lgc10.htm was taken with this lens.

The lens weights 3 kg -- lighter than the current AF 200-400, 400, 500 and 600 lenses.

I am still interested in the C-PL 1S polarizer, when you are ready to sell it.

Gimbal, if you don't buy the polarizer from Bob please send me a PM. I have one that I would be willing to sell. Bob, I hope you don't mind me making this offer on your post, but I thought I would let Gimbal know that he could come to me as a second option.

I'm sorry. I hadn't realized that the original post was back in May 2011.
