1,000.00 USD

Item Location
Washington (United States)

Item Description
This is the beautifully historic lens. I purchased it about 2 years ago from a forum member who lived in Sweden. He was amazing and very helpful. I have gotten some awesome photos with it over the years and can share some samples if desired. I’m selling it for less than what I bought it at simply because of continued use and age. I honestly don't want to get rid of it cause I love it but since I recently purchased the new D FA* 70-200, it's time for this one to go to a new home!

The lens creates beautiful FA style photos. Cosmetically it’s in very good shape for a 20 year old lens and there are no glass issues like scratches, oil marks, fungus, haze, etc. The aperture works great and is clean. In addition, the power zoom works… a nice added feature.
The sale of the lens includes…
1. Front and rear lens caps
2. original carrying case in excellent condition
3. Lens Hood

Worth Noting:
1. Dust: a few dust specs on inner elements. All lenses this old have it!
2. Lens had a slight infinity focus problem which was recently fixed! The issue was a few loose screws inside. Everything now works great!

Finally, I can provide additional extra photos if needed. I have a few close-ups of the very minor scuffs that are on the body of the lens and the hood but I didn't add them because I figured the 10 I uploaded were the most important. Have a great one!
