Beautiful prime telephoto lens. The standard for all professional sports photogs and fashion photogs. Great for wildlife photography (especially birds). One of Nikon's sharpest lenses and fastest auto focusing. Can be manually focused as well. I use this on my D810 which is an FX digital camera body. It can also be used on a DX digital camera body, and when done so, it makes it the equivalent of a 450mm telephoto. This can also be used on Nikon's new "Z" camera bodies (mirrorless) with the use of a Nikon FTZ adaptor.

As it has the VR (Vibration Reduction) function, you can actually hand hold this and shoot. I generally always use a monopod. a tripod or if out and about brace up against a tree or something... but the VR works really well. This s a very fast lens as well, as this is an f2.8 lens.

New these went for about $5300. The current VR II version goes for $5500 new. All the new one does is add about two more stops of VR capability. On eBay, these range from about $2000 (pretty beat up and non-USA models) to about $3500 and more depending on condition and if it is a USA model. Being a USA model is very important, as Nikon will not repair any Nikon equipment (if it ever needs repairing), if it is non-USA gear (grey market from Japan and other countries). (SEE USA STICKER ON LENS BARREL - photo #7).

I do not have the original box. I am the second owner. The person I bought it from did not have the box or original instruction manual. I downloaded the manual from a Nikon website.

Except for a small scratch on one edge of the lens barrel (less than an inch I would say)... the lens is in great shape. See photo #7. I try and show everything, so there are no surprises.

The glass is flawless and has Nikon's NANO crystal coating. The lens condition and appearance itself is a 9 out of 10. All paint is perfect. The shutter blades are oil free. All auto functions work perfectly. The lens hood is basically perfect. The soft front lens cover is basically perfect. The carrying case looks like it was hardly ever used. Please look at all the photos I took so you can see its condition is as I have described it.

I am not going to go into all the technical specs of this lens... if you are looking at it, you know what it can do.

So, if you are interested in owning one of Nikon's premier lenses, this is one you have to see. The nice thing about buying on C/L locally, is you can inspect it in person before you buy. Furthermore, there is no sales tax or shipping charges, saving you another $350 or more. Save yourself a bundle. Also make sure it is a USA model, and that it works!
