FS: Nikkor 400mm f2.8 AF-S D (mint) to sell or trade.
« on: January 04, 2012, 05:10:25 AM »

 I'll miss this ultra sharp beauty but since I mostly use APS-c sensor for tele, it sometimes is longer than required. The glass/performance/appearance is identical to the current version, but lacks VR which I find useless for a 4.800gr weight lens aimed to be used on a tripod or monopod most of the time with high shutter. In return it bares the STURDIEST TRIPOD LEG of all the Nikon 400s and an APERTURE RING.
 This lens is razor sharp at full aperture with both my TC-14EII & TC-20EIII teleconverters, but it was also the same sharp with the TC-17EII & TC-20EII I used to own! Its usable even when stacking my kenko PRO 300 1.4 TC to the back of the TC-20EIII for 1700mm equivalent at F8.0 on an APS-c sensor!!! AF is ultra fast with all teleconverters and is available even at 2.8x in good light. With this lens you don't get one but at least 3 more focal lengths of top ultra tele performance.
 CONDITION: Mint, un-indistinguishable from new.
 ACCESSOIRES: All that is supplied from factory (double CF hood, rear cap, front cover, CT-402 aluminum case, strap still sealed.
 DELIVERY: In most countries I can send the lens to a trusted business associate where it can be inspected before purchase, a 20% advance payment is required for the postage.
 PRICE: Euros 4200 via paypal or a paypal advance payment and cash on delivery (see above).
 PART EXCHANGE/TRADE: Any Nikkor 300mm f2.8 with AFS motor and clean glass will do, alternatively the Sigma 300/f2.8 prime only. Fuji 50mm, 80mm and/or GX680 (I, II or III) camera will be highly               
                                    considered, the Contax 645 mutar 1.4x teleconverter is also needed.
Happy New year for everybody, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr

Another thing I need and would trade for...
 The Capture group stitching adapter for the Fuji GX680, in Contax 645 mount!
 Anyone?

Here are some pictures that I was asked for, the serial number is evident, the lens has been bought from the Greek importers 16 months ago at slightly better price than the VR, because it was old stock. Thanks, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr

it was a great lens
marketing makes people believe they need VR
AFS-II is in fact lightest of all 300 2.8s with pretty much the same optical performance

Come on guys 4200 for the ultimate long tele lens in the world? Its performance with teleconverters in full aperture is un-machable, its equipped with a an aperture ring for ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY with film or Canon digital (via an adapter), you buy a 560mm f4 and an 800 f5.6 at the price of one! It is AF-S, I can't believe I only had one offer for this masterpiece. Regards, Theodoros. www.fotometria.gr
