Nikon 200/4 D micro, 80-200/2.8 AF-S, 85/1.4 D, Sigma 100-300/4 DG EX

Not expecting much interest for these lenses here, but I know there's at least a couple Nikon shooters on here so I figured I'd post it just in case

1. Nikon 200mm f/4 D ED-IF AF Micro Lens w/ Hood and Case
The lens comes with the original box, case, strap and manual. In addition, it also comes with the matching hood and kirk foot. The lens is in excellent condition, with only a few small marks on the body. The hood has two very small marks/dings near the rim as well. None of these cosmetic marks are very noticeable, but I wanted to point them out nonetheless. The optics and mechanics of the lens are excellent with no issues. $1150 (local/cash).
SOLD - locally

2. Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S Zoom Lens w/ Hood
The lens includes the original hood, which shows a fair amount of marks on it. The body itself has a few small marks, but nothing major. The optics and mechanics of the lens are excellent, and the focus motor doesn't squeak or have any issues. There is some light dust inside the lens, but nothing excessive or out of line. An excellent lens that I am selling because I recently picked up the 70-200/2.8VRII. $850 (local/cash).
SOLD - locally

3. Nikon 85mm f/1.4 D Lens w/ Hood
The lens includes the original hood. The lens is in EX+ overall condition, with only a few small marks on the hood. I would have rated the lens itself a 9+ other than the small marks on the hood. Optics and mechanics of the lens are excellent, a very sharp and outstanding lens. $875 shipped.
SOLD

4. Sigma 100-300mm f/4 APO DG EX
The lens includes the manual, hood and a Domke Pouch (not original). The lens is in excellent condition overall. The body has a few small marks, but no peeling of the paint or scratches. The hood shows some rub marks, but again, nothing major. The glass is clean with the exception of one very small mark towards the outside of the front element. It can (barely) be seen in the picture below at around 5 o'clock towards the edge of the element. It has absolutely no effect on IQ, but obviously I wanted to mention it nonetheless. The mechanics of the lens are excellent. Selling this because as I mentioned above, I picked up a 70-200/2.8VRII (along with a 1.4x TC). $675 shipped.
SOLD

Shipping within the US will be via either USPS Priority or FedEx Home Delivery and will run around $20 (insured), depending on the location and weight of the package. I will ship just about anywhere in the world via USPS Express/EMS shipping, so please contact me for a quote. Typically the cost is between $40-60 (insured) depending on the location and weight.

Paypal is the preferred method of payment and no addition fees are charged for using PayPal. I am willing to accept other forms of payment on a case-by-case basis. All sales are final, however, if you feel the lens is not as described or there is an issue, please contact me within a few days and you can return the lens for a full refund.

Nice lenses, Dan! If I were not heavily invested in Pentax (and still hoping for FF), I would buy the whole lot.

Thanks!

Despite picking up the FF Nikon, I'm still very much hoping for a FF Pentax at some point too

No, just rearranging things a bit. I replaced the 80-200/2.8 and 100-300/4 with the 70-200/2.8VRII + 1.4x TC. I pretty much have the same range covered, at the same apertures, but with the benefit of only having one lens and VR throughout the range. On the downside, the new combo is bit more expensive than the other two lenses combined

I replaced the Nikon 200/4 macro with a Sigma 150/2.8 macro. Don't get me wrong, the 200/4 was outstanding, but the 150/2.8 is pretty damn good too. Plus, as a telephoto prime for general use, the Sigma is actually a little better IMO. It has HSM and focuses quite a bit faster (especially because it has a focus limter as well). It also costs less than half the price uses compared to the Nikon I have the Sigma 1.4x TC (which I originally bought to try with the 100-300/4), and I found it works extremely well with the 150/2.8 macro to give you a 210/4 macro.

The 85/1.4D is only for sale because I ended up with two of them That said, I have a 105/2 DC coming in this weekend that could (potentially) pose a threat to the 85/1.4

I have, and love, the D700 - Sigma 100-300/4 combo. The 100-300/4 is a very nice lens, and certainly a great value.

Me too. I also shoot it on the D90.

Wow! Someone should buy a used D90 just to shoot that 100-300 on... Or if you're getting any Nikon camera, get this 100-300 also here... just wow.

The 100-300/4 is now sold, thanks for the bumps

It is an excellent lens, and a really great value IMO (especially the Nikon mount version which not only has the HSM motor, but is also several hundred dollars cheaper on the used market than the Pentax mount version).

Sales are pending on the AF-S 80-200/2.8 and the 85/1.4. Just a couple more tweaks to get down to me "final" Nikon lineup ( ok, no one who knows me is going to believe for a second that I am capable of getting to a "final" lineup).
