Since I haven't used this lens since I purchased a 70-200VR, I have decided to sell it.

This lens is in as-new condition in every way. Glass is flawless, as is the exterior. VR functions perfectly. I am the original owner, bought from The Camera Store (Calgary, AB) in January 2007 so there is 2 years of warranty left. I have the original receipt along with the blank warranty card, so the future owner shouldn't have any issues with warranty (I'd be willing to help if there was). The lens has always had a Nikon NC protective filter on it, never been bumped, dropped, never seen rain, etc. I even wash my hands before I use any of my camera equipment. It has always been stored in a camera bag along with a bunch of silica gel.

I have all original packaging, box, protective pouch, lens hood, etc.

Price is as follows:

$460 lens only
$500 with a 67mm Nikon NC Filter
$500 With 67mm Kenko Pro 1 Circular Polarizer
$540 with both filters

I am open to serious offers.

Happy to part out the filters as well. Both are in as-new condition, flawless glass. I have all original packaging. $40 each.

Currently the 70-300VR is $567 at The Camera Store after tax
Currently the Kenko Pro 1 Polarizer is $125 at TCS after tax
Currently the Nikon NC Filter is $60 USD + shipping + tax at B&H Photo (TCS doesn't carry them)

If you read the reviews, the only real complaint with the lens is that it is slightly soft wide open at 300mm, however my copy seems to be better than average (see samples below).

Pictures are of the actual lens for sale. Please let me know if you would like to see different pictures, or if you require any additional information. The little white dots on the lens element is just a reflection from my lights - the glass is absolutely flawless.

The best way to get a hold of me is e-mail, as I check it multiple times a day: mschlosser@shaw.ca

I am located in Calgary, Alberta, but I would be happy to ship anywhere in North America using the shipping method of your choice (your cost). I have done 3 previous transactions as the seller on Nikonians with great success, and I have 6 100% feedback transactions on ebay (username: Bjorgly).
