I just picked up a 300mm f4 AFS on Ebay for $721.00. The seller has a 100% rating and stated the lens is mint......let's hope so. I'm also bidding on a Kirk replacement collar.

Oh Lord what have I done............ :D

Scott,

I predict that you will love the new lens. I love my 300 2.8, but you certainly can't hand hold it (at least I can't). IMO, the 300 f4 is one of Nikon's best bargains image quality vs. cost wise.

Enjoy!!

I'm green with envy :mrgreen:. I've tried the 300/4 out a couple of times in camera stores, and had a hard time giving it back to the clerk. I'll own one someday, but for the moment, I'll just enjoy the pictures you'll be sharing from yours. Congratulations!

Congrats, Scott! I think you'll really like this lens. It's not difficult to handhold and the shots it produces are great. This weekend I shot flying birds with a Tamron 1.4x and was amazed at how sharp they came out -- handheld at that! It never ceases to amaze me. Enjoy!

Hi Scott,

That's easy, the 85mm PC f/2.8. I would have suggested the Beast, 28-70, but you already have a lens close to that focal length. :twisted:
