[SOLD] The Great Nikon Kit-Rearranging Sale—F-Mount Goodies!

I've recently decided to re-prioritize my two kits and shift all my prime shooting to Pentax and all my zoom shooting to Nikon. Therefore, I'm selling off a lot of my Nikon gear to pick up the 14-24/2.8 or 16-35/4, 24-70/2.8, and 70-200/2.8 VR.

I've described all of the items below to the best of my ability. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. Photos of (and FROM) the items are available upon request.

All items will be shipped by USPS Priority Insured. Postage and PayPal fees are included in the asking prices. I'm fairly firm on my pricing, but if you think my prices are way out of line, don't be afraid to tell me so. Lowballers will be ignored.

[[NOTE: Currently shipping in USA only due to post office convenience issues.]]

=======================

Nikon 35mm f/2 AF (non-D): Clean glass front and rear, one speck of dust inside rear element. Some wear on the body--lettering partially rubbed away in some places on the aperture ring, some scratches in the plastic, wear on the rubber focusing ring. Hood, generic caps included. Asking $240 -> $220 -> $210. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Nikon 20-35mm f/2.8D: Clean glass front and rear. Very good cosmetics--scratch on and rub mark below the A/M ring. Slightly stiff zoom & focusing rings--definitely not broken, but more resistance than my other Nikon lenses. Very sharp for me from f/2.8. Original front & rear caps, original hood. Asking $550. (SOLD to Peter Zack)

Nikon 180mm f/2.8 AF (non-D, late version): No scratches, very tiny amount of what may be fungus on the edge of the front element--hasn't grown since I've owned it. Excellent sharpness, lightweight, etc. Asking $450 -> $350. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Nikon 300mm f/4 AF (non-D): Clean glass front & rear--no fungus/haze. Tiniest scratch near the center of the front element--no effect on IQ. Very good cosmetics. Drop-in filter included. Generic front & rear caps, third-party soft case. Asking $550 -> $500. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AF (non-D): Clean glass front & rear. Very good cosmetics. Original caps, Tiffen polarizing filter, third-party leather case, original papers. Asking $225 -> $210. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Quantaray 24mm f/2.8 AF (Sigma Mini-Wide II rebrand): Perfect glass front & rear. Ok cosmetics--some wear to the rubberized paint finish. The Sigma version of this lens has a great reputation and the Quantaray version is no different. Very sharp for me, even at f/2.8. Asking $120. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Vivitar 28mm f/2.8 Close Focus: A great manual focus prime made by Komine. You can read more about these singular lenses here and here. Clean glass front and rear. Smooth focusing & snappy aperture. Asking $100 -> $75.

Lester A. Dine 105mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro: Legendary glass made by Kiron, rebranded by Vivitar and Lester Dine. Perfect optics, excellent cosmetics. Focusing action is smooth as silk. Aperture is snappy. Original front cap, generic rear cap. Asking $350. (SOLD on FredMiranda)

Can you tell me if any of these would work on a FF without compromises?

All of these are FF lenses—my only Nikon bodies are full-frame (D700 and F5).
