Nikon 300 mm f/2.8 AF-S VR1 For Sale EC
Original owner of this tack sharp lens. Bought for bird photography and has been in the field twice. The size and weight are incompatible with my arthritis. Its sits in my equipment cabinet. Only minor cosmetic flaw is a minor scratch in the paint less than 1.5 cm along the under side of the lens barrel. I did not even realize it was there until I inspected photos. This lens is in excellent condition overall.
New similar USA version of this lens retails for $5899 at B&H where this was purchased. Current version differs only in VR II vs. VRI. In my opinion, the VR II is hardly any advantage. While you might be able to hand hold for a shot or two, you won't realize the benefit of this lens w/o a tripod.
Asking $4600. Includes all original lens caps, hood, instruction manual. 52 mm drop-in Nikon filter, Nikon field case and orignal Nikon shipping carton. Will ship to contiguous 48 in US. Shipping and insurance at cost to be borne by purchaser. Paypal add 3%. High res. photos available to serious interested parties. Please don't waste your time, or mine. with low ball offers.
