Selling my USA 70-200 VR I f/2.8 lens. Includes everything that came with lens when new. Purchased from B&H in October 2008 by a friend of mine. He had a change of mind, and I bought it shortly thereafter. Original receipt will be included.
The lens has seen very little use and is in excellent condition. Works flawlessly and always has. No marks that I can see, lens or glass. Even the box and paperwork are nearly flawless. Climate controlled, non-smoking home. I can't imagine you would purchase a better copy anywhere. As for sharpness, I believe it is the sharpest lens I own other than perhaps the 300 f/2.8.
I have always kept a clear filter on the lens for protection of the front element; however, please note the filter is not included with the sale.
Although I don't use it much, I hope to always have a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. For natural light portraits, 200mm with a 2.8 aperture is hard to beat. I never thought I would part with this one; however, they say the VRII version is better suited to a camera like the D800E that I now use, thus if this sells, I will buy the newer version. If not, I will continue to use this one.
Payment via PayPal. Price is $1,475 which includes insured shipping and PayPal fees. Selling to CONUS only.
Please contact me via email if interested. Happy to answer any questions.
After reviewing my post, I decided to re-take two of the pictures because the filter was attached and showed in the originals. Since the filter is not included, decided best not to show it on the lens.
