Had to share my unbelievable luck. I recently snagged a mint 35-70 2.8 AF-D on ebay for $286 (probably because the auction ended in wee hours of the morning ). Glass in perfect condition, no fungi, dust--nothing. The shots I've taken so far are beautiful. For those looking for an alternative to the expensive and heavy 24-70 2.8, I highly recommend this beauty.

It is fantastic and from what others have posted on Nikonians it and the 24-70 are very close in image quality. Only wished it wasn't a push-pull zoom. I plan to try my copy out next week at BB practice on my d700.
