A friend of mine directed me to you guys to list my NIKON 70-200MM AF VRII F/2:8 lens.

I purchased the same from B&H on 9/19/12 to photograph my dog running a retriever event. Well, I failed - it's way too much lens for me. I literally put it on my (also new) D7000, walked ten feet from my truck with it - turned around and put it all back in the bag. It was too big and too heavy for me to even mess with.

I have the box and all that came with it - plus the instant I took it out of the box, I attached a 77mm Nikon Clear NC filter and changed the original foot to a RRS LCF-10 foot. I purchased a Nikon 77mm polarizer II filter for the set up too. Can you say I had delusions of grandeur for a newbie?

Anyone that's interested - I'd let the lens, with the original and RRS feet and two 77mm filters go for $2,300.00 (but reasonable offers would defintely be considered). Oh, and the lens came with some Tiffen 77mm package from B&H - I can throw that in too. I think I've learned my lesson and won't be needing a 77mm filter for anything else in my lifetime.
