Went to a sale at my local camera store today & what did I spy with my little eye but a near mint Nikkor 300mm F4. I looked at the price and could NOT belive it. It was on consignment for $300 after discount. It has a very minor scatch on the outer body but that is it. According to the clerk some guy is selling off all of his fathers camera equipment (he passed away). The poor clerk wanted it soooo bad but couldn't afford it. I don't feel sorry for him though as he just picked up his new D2X yesterday! Anyway, I just had to share my joy at finding this gem.
