    Hi,

    I have just seen an ad for this lens for sale in my area.

    It says " only used a few times by a birder".

    Anyone with experience with this lens?

    It is 5 mins from me!

    Is it of intrest to anyone here on the cafe'?

  2. How much are they asking?

    Hi Larry,

    Asking price is $1700

    I haven't contact him yet but I assume the case is included.

  4. It may be tough focusing on the D200. If you could give it a test run then you may reconsider. I was going to get a 500 P, but elected to break the bank and get the 500 AFS. I haven't looked back. You will need a really good tripod. I have the 1549 which I love. The 600 is a heavy lens, so your investment could cost you a full wimberley 600 and heavy duty tripod 650+.
