    LOVE this lens! But I don't anticipate shooting much wildlife for a while. It's time to re-think my photography goals and lenses.

    Lens has only been used about 3 weeks per year! The glass is in excellent shape. My photos don't show how like-new the glass really is! (I need Mike's skills for that!)

    AF is quick and accurate. Lens barrel is in very good shape. Everything functions great.

    Here is a photo I took with this lens in January this year. The photo (natural light - no flash BTW) should tell you all you want to know about the quality of this lens!

    There are a few paint scuffs where the metal hood fastened onto the lens. I have been using a LensCoat flexible hood now for several years. There is a light scratch near where the lens connects to the camera. Been there since I bought it. Please see pictures below. Lens is beautiful!

    Includes:
    CT-502Metal case (used only to store the lens). I had the case for my 200-400 which I sold years ago. I moved a few styrofoam blocks to accommodate the 500mm.

    Nikon lens foot
    RRS LCF-16 lens foot
    Lenscoat
    Nikon soft lens cover
    AquaTech lens cap
    LensCoat flexible hood

    I'd prefer a cashier's check over PP. And if we are really lucky, we could meet up, you could examine the lens and you could have it in your hands without dealing with USPS, UPS or FedEx. Let's talk! $4100 price excludes PP, shipping to CONUS only, and insurance.

    Due to the value of this lens, I prefer to deal with established members. Please PM with any questions.
