300 2.8 AF-S questions.

  1. Hi.

    I am doing some long term planning. Trying to figure out a way on how I can convince the CFO of the need of a 300 2.8 AF-S. Right, the wife...

    I have a 300/f4 I can sell to put towards it if needed. My question though is what are some typical prices of the 2.8 AF-S used? Not AF-S II, but the first version of AF-S.

    I've done searches on ebay and so on. Can't even find any on completed auctions.

    This would be used primarily for sports btw.

    So what are some ballpark prices?

  2. Low $ 2,000's ($ 2,100 - 2,300) or so.
  3. That's what I needed. Thanks Frits.
  4. Joe,

    I bought a used 300 f2.8 vII on ebay for $2500. Mint condition and the only marks were on the tripod foot. Just be careful if you go this route because there are a lot of scammers on eBay. It seems the higher the price the higher the percentage of scammers.
