I decided to sell one of my favorite lenses - the legendary Nikon AF Nikkor 28mm f/1.4D.

The lens is in perfect working condition except for a small cosmetic issue; a crease on MF/AF ring. It is a pretty common issue with this lens. I bought it already carrying the same crease from a previous owner and used the lens on my D3 with no problems whatsoever. I actually had the MF/AF replaced in december 2010, but the crease started to show right back after 7 months ... kinda destined to be there, I guess .. It's not a crack, though.

I won't be loosing any words over the IQ of this lens ... - if you are interested, you know what you are looking at. I'm selling it with some other gear to finance a couple of D800 bodies, as the nature of my photography work has changed.

The lens I'm selling now was one of the last ones being made; only about 30 copies were made after mine before production stopped!

The lens comes with both caps, a metal HN-9 lens hood, Hoya S-HMC Pro1 UV(O) 72mm filter and the original box and papers.

Asking price: 1.599€ € / 1.299£ + shipping within EU

Can also be bought paired with Nikon D3 camera body (see other ad) for 3.499€ / 2.799£

Pictures of the lens uppon request.
