    Dear Everyone!

    Has ANYONE have any experiance with this glass? I'am lusting for it instead of 300 f4 AF-S. One friend of mine has a 300 AF-S, but it can't give any shocking pictures besides my 180 IF-ED ! 180 is the best Nikkor I ever owned:) I love my 50 1.4 AI-S too, and wonderd can this old 300 AI-S hold up with the 300 AF-S? Probably.. but i'am not sure.
    I can buy a brand new 300 AF-S for 1000$ here, or one 300 4.5 IF-ED AIS from ebay 540$. (+ I love AI-S build quality.:)
    What would you do? Do you now 300 4.5 AIS?

    PLEASE WRITE SOMETHING :))
    MANY THANKS

    $540 is alot of money for this lens. I bought mine for $30 used and sold it a few weeks ago for $150. (eBay)

    Takes nice pictures but the manual focus wasn't worth it. Built like a true tank though!
