COMPLETED Nikon AF-S 500mm f4G ED VR. Ships: US

Jan 2, 2009
User name: drr1531

Items to sell/buy/trade: Nikon AF-S 500mm f4G ED VR

Prices: $4200

Location: SC(near Myrtle Beach), USA

Ships to: US

Description: Excellent condition AF-S Nikkor 500mm f4G ED VR lens with LensCoat lens cap, lens cover and RRS foot. Last professional service was performed by APS March of 2018 for tune/clean and replacement of mounting collar.

I am the original owner of this lens. Ordered LensCoat and RRS foot at same time as lens and both have been on it since day one. Aside from brief periods of travel to warmer climates this lens has spent its entire life in Alaska where our typical indoor humidity is 35%(mold only occurs in high humidity environs). Many images made with this lens have been posted here in the Cafe. We're spending this winter on the SC coast and I thought I'd list it while down here in the event there might be potential buyers close enough to meet and see it in person.

Sale includes lens, LensCoat lens cover, LensCoat front lens cap, RRS foot, and original Nikon rear end cap. I do have the original Nikon case/locker and nylon lens cap but they are back at home in Alaska. If the buyer wants the case I can ship it at buyer's expense when I get back home in April.

1) Lens w/LensCoat cover, lens cap, and original Nikon hood.
