I have finally had the courage to put my Nikon 200-400mm f4G VR zoom lens up for sale.
As any reader of my blog will know, I have been rather captivated by the Fuji X system for my work and other photography pursuits. I find it works for me for the way I want to use it. As a consequence, I have been selling off my Nikon gear to let others get some use from it, to clear the decks and to raise some funds for other projects.
Selling this lens is not an easy decision as replacing it would involve ludicrous cost that now puts it out of reach. However, being realistic, I never now use it, so it really has to go and release those funds for other things.
It is an absolute minter, unmarked and with all accessories including front soft lens cover, rear cap, clear drop-in filter, semi-soft lens case, protective screw in front element, tripod foot, carbon lens hood, manual and original box. It is a professional grade lens with superb engineering and would suit sports, airshow or wildlife shooters. Heck, if you want a lens like this you already know what it does! I have used mine almost exclusively for airshow shooting.
The Version 2 of this lens added a nano crystal lens coating and an extra stop of stabilisation in the VR, but is otherwise identical. It will set you back a minimum of £4800 currently at one dealer, but normally they are £5800.
Anyway, it's yours for £3000 and is currently up on Gumtree too. Email me if interested.
Here are some shots so you can see how pristine it looks.
