    And you can complete the set: TC-14c from the same outfit (they have lots of interesting stuff).

    I'll be watching, if only for entertainment.

    Bump so all can view.
  4. is the lens really that fat in real life or is it just a distorted photo?? It looks as fat as it is long in the photo!!!
  5. Try handholding this one ... :)  for a one hour shooting ... might have to replace shoulders after that.

    gee, they have the 800mm and a bunch of 39mm filters for the older lenses. very hard to get those, I believe. But 20% buyer premium?

    The 15mm looks interesting, though...

    The photo looks squished to me. It's roughly the size and shape of a 600/4 or 400/2.8, but a bit bigger. And noticeably heavier! :eek:

    I wonder how high the price will go.

    I hope this big baby won't be bought by a rich collector who doesn't use it, although it will be like this I suppose...

    What a massive honk of glass.

    A fellow on dpreview got one on ebay a year or two ago. I think it was in the $6000 neighborhood.

    The front lens is the same diameter as a 400/2.8 or 600/4, but the barrel is shorter, so yes it is a fat lens. Rather like a scaled up 200/2.

    If it were a REGULAR auction (not live) I'd estimate a higher final price. My guess is $3,000 -4,000.

    I'm more interested in TC-14C, as it's a much more rare item IMHO. I wonder how much better than TC-14b it is....?

    I have 2 TC-14C's. Both perfect like new. I think I have had 4 of the 300 sold. I was/ am an avid collector of AIS Nikon glass. Here is a previous one I sold.

    Hey Don? $$$$300f2

    Common Don,
    You must have an idea of where the price of this lens is headed?
    What do you think?

    It has been a while since I bought or sold an AIS piece... so I am not up on the current prices.

    As for the converter a few years ago... they routinely sold for 800-1000. I picked one up for under 600. That was a deal. :wink:

    The 300 F2... never had one of those BEASTS. Peter(innerimager) had one... not sure if he sold it.

    So much depends on condition because these are really collectibles at this point. Things are "like new" or they are not. There is a huge drop off when things are not mint. If I had to guess on the 300... I would say 5-6K.
