    Hi all,

    Well this is the lens lust forum, now i've just got a severe dose of it!!!

    Was shooting in a wildlife hide with my 300 f4 + Kenko 1.4 TC close to my home today when a chap came in with a 500 f4 on his D1X.

    Anyway my 'lust' got the better of me and i asked if i could have a look / try his D1X and 500 - boy i wish i hadn't, that lens is absolutely fantastic - i'm now in the process of working out how to get one !!!!

    Unfortunately i didn't dare ask to try the lens on my cam so haven't got any pics to display - but if there are any of you folk who use this lens would care to post pics in this thread please feel free :smile:

    Here is one with the 500mm AI-P. It is a great lens and (relatively) affordable compared to the AF versions.

    Crystall, Well this is going to be painful for you. First I have the 500 on the big auction site, and I am now selling a 300 2.8 AFS-II since I just got a deal on the VR version.

    Good luck, Larz

    Hey Larz,

    Good luck selling your 500. I'm thrilled you got a deal on a 300VR!! Congrats! I am excited about that, too my 300VR from F15Todd arrives later today!!!

    I look forward to seeing your posts with the 300VR!
     
  14. Well, now ya'll got me wanting one! My 300mm even with a 1.7 TC just ain't long enough! Geez, why did I have to click on this thread! :eek::Ouch::eek:
     
  15. And after you get a 500mm, you will want a 800mm ......
     
  16. Guess it's a good thing I ain't got $$ - unless monopoly money counts!:rolleyes:
