If you are here, you probably already know how great this lens is. If not, here is a link to a long discussion of the vr2, which is identical except for nano coating.
Also, on the FM forum you will find very long posts in praise of it. Check out trenchmonkey's
handheld work with it, (and the 2x) on rodeo and birds in flight!
This copy is EX+. No scratches or abrasions, perfect glass, clean aperture blades. It comes with the Kirk replacement AS foot, the original foot, and the protective booty.
I had always wanted this lens, and it is as good as they say, but shooting stage work, I need the zoom to keep up, even if it is a stop slower. And, my wife's medical bills won't let me keep it just for personal work.
It is a substantial lens, but it balances very well with a pro body, and, even with a crippled left wrist, I was able to work an hour or more with it.
I have sold a fair amount of high dollar items on this site, and I am 4865mc on ebay, with a 100% positive feedback.
Asking $3650, paypal and priority shipping, of your choice, included.
thanks for looking.
EDIT: I would consider a very clean af-s 24-120 f4g as partial trade.
